Trevor McDonald's Indian Train Adventure
Episode 1  |  SBS  |  October 31, 2019

The veteran newsman boards the Maharajas Express - an extraordinary train that re-creates the heritage of India's richest kings - for an eight-day tour of India, taking in its most wondrous sights. Thirty years after he last visited as a foreign correspondent, he sees how India is rapidly transforming itself into an economic superpower, complete with high-tech factories, five-star hotels and the most expensive home on the planet. But, as he makes his way from teeming, overcrowded Mumbai to the modern capital, New Delhi, he also witnesses the poverty that continues to sit side-by-side with the country's new-found wealth.
