On 17th and 18th August 1989 Tom Jennings, director Rimas Vainorius, a cast of 1000s (!), a film crew and a huge truck blazed the trail for the EuroTunnel to link England to the rest of Europe. They invaded Dover for the first round of filming and once that was completed they then all took the ferry (EuroTunnel hadn't been built of course!) to Calais and filmed at the EuroTunnel site and the surrounding countryside. Tom, who has a full trucker's HGV 1 licence, played, EuroTrucker, the driver who was travelling on the EuroStar through the EuroTunnel for the first time. The resulting corporate video was used to raise the necessary funding. The EuroTunnel was destined to become one of the great engineering feats of not only the late 20th century, but of all time. Tom Jennings is proud to have played his part in this amazing project. He was, in the virtual sense anyway, the very first passenger on EuroStar and the very first traveller to go through the EuroTunnel!!! Back to reality, it was opened in 1994 and in 2006, 7.8 million travellers made the journey from London to Paris, France and to Brussels in Belgium. In June 2006 Tom made his first actual journey on the Eurostar to visit Brussels on business. He said, "It was a breathtaking and luxurious journey and I would highly recommend it."
