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

Salford Advertiser - - WEEKEND TV -

New se­ries. The co­me­dian makes five train jour­neys tak­ing in the spec­tac­u­lar sights of Africa, trav­el­ling to un­ex­pected places in deserts and forests, vil­lages and cities, and find­ing out how the rail­ways are used to­day. He be­gins in the north, on a line that links the trad­ing cities of Morocco, Al­ge­ria and Tu­nisia. Stock­ing up for his trip at a souk in Mar­rakesh, he boards the train for a seven-hour ride to the an­cient city of Fes, and even­tu­ally reaches the Sa­hara - and his fi­nal des­ti­na­tion of Tozeur.
