Griff Off the Rails: Down Under

  • 6 x 1 hr Travel Documentary series

    British comedian and travel enthusiast Griff Rhys Jones is boarding the trains of Australia to present a very modern look at the land down under. In this six-part series, Griff will criss-cross the vast continent from the west coast to the east coast, north to south, from surf beaches to dusty outback, he’ll cover thousands of miles through the heart of this great land.
    Following his successful journey of through Africa in 2015, Griff will immerse himself in outback Australia during his journey on the rails; from the far reaches of Perth in dusty Western Australia, to the diverse cultural mixes found in South Australia, to the larger than life landmarks that dot the Queensland Coast.
    As he journeys across the country on these railway lines he’ll unravel Australia’s unique pioneering history, meet some of the train line’s more unique characters, and journey through its most isolated towns and spirited cities.
