Your audience always likes train shows and Australia is always a fascination for our viewers, so here they are in combination!
During three extraordinary train journeys Making Tracks explores Australia’s vast beauty and wilderness. Viewers will discover why extreme heat, cold and isolation have made building and maintaining the railway an almost impossible task.
Australia is the world’s biggest island and it takes days for these majestic trains to cross it. Along the way we meet the often eccentric people of Australia, the people who work on the trains and the passengers who travel East to West, South to North including passing through the dense rainforest of Queensland.
The three train routes are The Indian Pacific, The Ghan and The Sunlander. All together, they crisscross more than 7,000 kilometers of Australia and encompass 5 different time zones.
This lively-paced, beautifully-photographed series is guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser and a favorite of your audience.
- 101 The Indian Pacific: from Coast to Coast: The Transcontinental Indian-Pacific takes 4 days and 3 nights to cross the entire width of this island continent. From the iconic city of Sydney, moulded around the rugged coastlines of the Pacific, across the immense barren plains of the Nullarbor to the Indian Ocean and Perth – Australia’s most remote capital city.
-102 The Sunlander: Trains of Tropical Queensland: The trains that run the one thousand, six hundred and eighty kilometre tropical gauntlet between Brisbane and Cairns run on tracks that took over 35 years to build, cutting through rainforest and mountains, over flooding rivers and crocodile infested swamps and into the mosquito laden humidity of the tropical north.
- 103 The Ghan: Through the Heart of Australia: Take your first class window seat on the legendary Ghan and travel nearly 3,000 kilometres from the bottom end of Australia to the very top – across enormous deserts, over sun-baked river beds, past ancient gorges and through the stunning red heart of this amazing continent.
It’s a dazzling, epic journey on one of the most famous trains in the world: Adelaide to Darwin, via Alice Springs, travelling through more than 20 degrees of latitude and taking three days and two nights.

I’ll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant
“The medicalization of American life from birth to death is killing our souls.”
– Hattie Bryant
As much as we all want to believe we can live forever, we all know deep down that it simply can’t be true.
From this program viewers learn that there are things each of us can do to live fully, all the way to the end. Anyone who is willing to take four simple steps now, while healthy, can minimize if not avoid entirely, the pain, suffering, confusion and disagreements that can arise when end-of-life healthcare wishes are not clearly spelled out.
Americans need this information because 70% say they want to die peacefully surrounded by friends and family … while actually 70% are dying in institutions surrounded by strangers.
Few people choose to contemplate critical illness or the inevitability of death until their time comes. Because possibilities are rarely discussed, many people are unprepared or unable to make critical end-of-life decisions and spend their last days in over-medicalized and unnecessarily painful and protracted situations.
Breaking through the taboo of discussing death, Hattie Bryant shows that we have choices.
