The In­dian Pa­cific: Aus­tralia’s Long­est Train Jour­ney, SBS, Sun­day at 7.30pm

SBS is bring­ing the slow TV move­ment back to screens in 2019 with its Slow Sum­mer pro­gram­ming.

Four marathon slow TV events, three hours each in prime time on SBS and stream­ing live on SBS On De­mand, will air each Sun­day in Jan­uary. The full jour­neys of up to 18 hours will be shown on SBS VICELAND.

First up is the transcon­ti­nen­tal which played a piv­otal part in link­ing the far-flung west coast with the eastern states.

The im­pacts of this rail­way line, which crosses Aus­tralia from Perth to Syd­ney, are ex­plored in­clud­ing how it im­pacted in­dige­nous Aus­tralians on the Nullar­bor Plain, the new colony of South Aus­tralia and the in­dige­nous trade route of the Blue Moun­tains.
