Chris Tar­rant: Ex­treme Rail­way Jour­neys Chan­nel 5, 9pm

Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

Chris takes a rail­way trip across Canada, re­veal­ing how 2,500 miles of transcon­ti­nen­tal rail­way was built against huge odds in just a few decades, help­ing to join to­gether a vast wilderness of iso­lated com­mu­ni­ties and cre­ate the coun­try that ex­ists to­day. He be­gins his jour­ney on one of the ear­li­est sec­tions of track to be built, on a train that is now a life­line for hun­ters and fish­er­men. He then sees one of the big­gest, most fa­mous trains in the world - the Cana­dian, be­fore head­ing for the Prairies, and on to the port of Van­cou­ver.
