Inside Central Station

One of the first commissions for the BBC Scotland channel when it launched in 2019, Inside Central Station is an observational documentary that goes behind the scenes at Glasgow Central, Scotland’s busiest train station and home of the biggest suburban network outside London. Narrated by Martel Maxwell, the series follows those that work all hours to keep more than 950 trains running a day, whilst also delving into the building’s history with fascinating stories from the past.


The first episode of Inside Central Station outperformed BBC Two, Channel 4 and Channel 5 in Scotland, and was the second most-watched programme of BBC Scotland's launch week. It has since run for four series, including two Christmas specials, with the latest series airing in an early evening slot on BBC One Scotland for the first time.
