Great Australian Railway Journeys delayed to 2020

Upcoming SBS factual Great Australian Railway Journeys has been pushed back to 2020.

Michael Portillo filmed the series in 2018 including trips on the Indian Pacific and The Ghan. It was announced at SBS Upfronts last November for 2019 but sources confirm it will now screen next year.

SBS is also yet to confirm dates for Luke Nguyen aboard the Reunification Express in Vietnam, Luke on a Train.


  1. I’m sure there’s another Hitler series that SBS Programming can grab to fill the void. As to why this 2018 Train series would be delayed is a whole other question …

  2. I hope to see more slow TV railway journey programming on SBS. The railway slow TV programming was limited to The Ghan, The Indian Pacific and North to South: NZ’s Wildest Journey. It would be nice to see more of the intercity, regional and urban railway journeys for slow TV.

    Michael Portillo is good, however, there is less focus on the railways and the railway operations and it is more about the stories beyond the railways in the settlements based upon a guidebook. That’s what I thought of Great British Railway Journeys.
