Documentary chronicling the history of the tram in Britain. American George Francis Train introduced the very first horse tram to the United Kingdom in 1860. The transport system was later powered by steam and then electricity but went into decline after the First World War and by the 1960s was no longer in use. However, the 1990s saw a resurgence of the tram in Manchester and in 2012 a multi-million pound tramway system was built in Blackpool.
