Mind the gap – Short film based on a true story…

If you have lived in or visited London over the last thirty years then the three words which make up the title of this short film will be familiar as you will have heard them many time on the underground tube system of the English capital.

For one elderly woman the words have a particular resonance.  Starring Eileen Nicholas and produced, written and directed byLuke Flanagan, Mind the Gap is based on a true story.

Writer-director Luke Flanagan tells the Londonist: “The actual mind the gap announcement is as iconic a part of London as the double decker bus or the post box. For Londoners it goes deeper — many of us remember the actual voice of Oswald Lawrence on the Northern Line, so when we hear it now we have a recall to that time. There’s a kind of nostalgia for growing up in London and using the tube.
