Switzerland is a small country that sits smack dab in the middle of the Alps, making for 360-degree scenery wherever a person finds themselves. Numerous lakes also add to the picture postcard look of this country, whose most famous citizen may have been the fictional Heidi. From banks to bucolic alpine meadows, Switzerland has it all. An overview of the best places to visit in Switzerland:
www.video125.co.uk This is a Driver’s eye view filmed on board an international train service, TGV 9244 travelling from Milan to Paris through the Alps. We board the TGV, 90 minutes into its journey at the brand new station of Turin Porta Susa, for a spectacular ride through the Alpine scenery. On-board cameras show the view of the road and the driver working with the Italian SCMT train speed control system. The climb towards the Alpine backdrop is relentless, starting gently at first but then increasing to as steep as 1 in 33, close to the maximum for conventional adhesion based railway vehicles. The summit is reached inside the 8 1/2 mile long Fréjus tunnel, the first through the Alps opened in 1871 at the time the longest tunnel in the world! With tunnel lighting, we can actually see it as the driver does. Once in France we continue with the Italian crew and Italian signalling until we reach Modane. Now the French crew takes over and we descend, at a similar rate to the climb, towards Chambery in South East France. En route we learn of France’s worst ever train disaster and see where 700 soldiers perished on board a runaway train. Filmed last summer, this feat of incredible engineering, coupled with the spectacular Alpine scenery, is a journey not to be missed. Available on DVD and in high definition on Blu-ray disc. The narrator is Jonathan Kydd while on both the DVD and Blu-ray discs, commentary is also available in Italian, French and German. There is even the option of no commentary at all – just the sounds of the TGV Réseau. Running time is 123 minutes

How much has the city of Paris changed over the last few decades!
