Great Australian Railway Journeys: Feb 25

Tonight on Great Australian Railway Journeys, Michael Portillo travels from Canberra To Melbourne.

Armed with his 1913 Bradshaw’s Guide, Michael Portillo crosses the south east of Australia from the seat of government in Canberra to the multi-ethnic heart of its second largest city, Melbourne. Floating above Canberra in a hot air balloon, Michael sees how Australia’s ‘Bush Capital’ was planned in the early 20th century.
