Great Railway Journeys, originally titled Great Railway Journeys of the World, is a recurring
series of travel documentaries produced by BBC Television. The premise of each programme is that
the presenter, typically a well-known figure from the arts or media, would make a journey by
train, usually through a country or to a destination to which they had a personal connection.
There were four series broadcast on BBC Two between 1980 and 1999, with the shorter series title
being used for all but the first. A new series entitled Great British Railway Journeys started
on BBC Two in January 2010.Genre:
