Slow Train Through Africa with Griff Rhys Jones ITV, 9pm

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR TV WEEK -

On the fi­nal leg of his jour­ney, the co­me­dian crosses 1,000 miles of South Africa, reach­ing the most southerly pas­sen­ger rail­way sta­tion on the con­ti­nent. Head­ing to Jo­han­nes­burg, he re­veals how the city has ben­e­fited from the scale of gold-min­ing in the area. Later on, he takes to the skies in a light air­craft for a bird's-eye view of one of South Africa's largest os­trich farms, and catches one of the world's most lux­u­ri­ous trains for a seven-hour ride to Cape Town, be­fore reach­ing the coastal set­tle­ment of Simon's Town.
