"I was in on the ground floor at King's Cross/St Pancras as member of the BR board in the 1980s. Disaster beckoned. St Pancras itself was coming down. The railway lands were blighted by indecision. King's Cross was to be "modernised". The story since has been one of rescue and, mostly, eventual triumph. King's Cross has proved among the most exciting cases of urban industrial renewal in Britain. To see the story told and this part of London so vividly portrayed is exhilarating." Simon Jenkins
