UK Hover Train on Inside Out East

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0952dp0/inside-out-east-18092017

There is a fascinating segment about the UK Hover Train developed back in the 1970s and then frustratingly abandoned in this ‘Inside Out East’ programme on iPlayer (Hover Train features at 19m 40s in, available until 18 Oct).

I had heard about the Hover Trains existence before but this is the first film footage I have seen. Such a waste of technological development. Could have been the Concorde of the land.
