Trains have a magic and mystery which is being lost in the West as the motor car takes over. But in the many parts of the world they are still the main method of transport - accessible to all, uniting families, forming crucial arteries linking societies. On trains you can discover something about the heart and soul of a country. In Great Railway Journeys six exceptional travellers share with us their discoveries, and their pleasures in travelling by train, whether in a steam train, a shabby diesel or on a steam engine footplate.
Entertaining and thoughtful, full of personal memories and beautifully described experiences, each journey has its own very unique character, to be savoured by those who enjoy travelling, are interested in contemporary life in other parts of the world, and, of course, love the magic and mystery of trains.
Syria & Jordan with Alexei Sayle
The Liverpudlian comedian travels from Aleppo to Aqaba traversing the two often misunderstood and feared Middle Eastern countries Syria and Jordan to discover whether Western ideas about them actually ring true.
