Many a country built its economic development on the back of its cross-country railway system. Strong and dependable, the iron tracks tied the nation together by transporting goods and people from coast to coast. While this is prevalent throughout out the world, none is more vital than the Great Indian Railway. Dating back to British Imperialism, this network of 24,000 miles of track winds itself over a wondrous landscape and through a rich tapestry of culturally diverse people. Narrated by Academy Award-winning actress Linda Hunt, this documentary from National Geographic unites a country from the peaks of the Himalayans to the Bombay Victoria Terminus.
