I have this on an old S-VHS videotape, much of the music used is different to that in the original steam telly programme. I recall well going to Alton Towers before all the " Proceedures " and other elf'n'safety nazi rubbish were a twinkle in the milkman's eyes. Seems to me the staff would have more fun, and job satisfaction, and the guests too, if they were left alone to do their jobs, and not treated like children.

7:55...there’s always one little, dirty chav that ruins it!! Probably the same one that graffitis in the queue lines!!

INNIT BRO ! Down with chavs.
The most insightful and down to earth UK theme park documentary ever made, pretty wry and bittersweet in places too! Filmed at a time when Alton Towers was on the brink of change too

Even though Alton Towers is now part of Merlin, they still manage to produce the magic (even if merlin couldn't careless)

Harrison Leggo: I agree to an extent but really, does it look like magic when you see some fat chav smoking in the staff room and some miserable bitch that’s written some sort of poem about how shit her days are working for Tussauds! 😂

Ah the days when the Fireworks were not swarmed with pop music. If only I was born then...
