Over the last two and a half years - Chris Tarrant has travelled - literally - all around the world filming Extreme Railway Journeys for Channel 5. The hugely successful TV series is already being repeated - and broadcast rights have been - and continue to be - picked up in other countries - while it is also being released on DVD. Chriss journeys have taken him to the Congo - India - Australia - Bolivia (twice) - Japan - Siberia - Myanmar - Canada and Cuba - and the latest programmes see the completion of filming in Alaska - Argentina - Azerbaijan - South Africa and Zimbabwe. Chris Tarrants Extreme Railway Journeys brings to life beautifully not only the romance of travelling by train - but also the sights - sounds and smells of the countries and places visited - while also illuminating the customs and attitudes of the people the author encountered along the way. But - as he says - I should have known what I was in for and what the word -extreme - means - when the very first show saw us filming in the Congo - where the train was six DAYS late.Beautifully illustrated with exclusive colour photographs - Extreme Railway Journeys is not only a record of remarkable journeys in extraordinary places by one of our shrewdest commentators. It is also a demonstration of the principle that to travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive.... Please click here to ask a question
