The mainstream Australian television station, Special Broadcasting Service (SBS) last night showed it's first ever 'slow television' experience. The subject was the transcontinental passenger train, "The Ghan". The 54 hour real time journey was condensed down to a 3 hour uninterrupted spectacle. With no ad breaks, narration or script, it was simply multiple camera angles from on board the train, helicopter and drone shots plus from line side or even underneath the train. Every now and then, historical or factual data was overlayed over the passing scenery or listened into brief conversations of the train crew or passengers.

And it seems that Australia liked what it saw, despite competing with larger summer sport coverage on other channels. Requests for a repeat or sequel have been made.

Australia had many thoughts watching The Ghan

It is available to freely watch through their On Demand internet playback service, however it does require registration and can be regionally locked.

How do you follow up 3 hours of Sunday night television showing footage of the Ghan traversing north to south across Australia?

You have 17 hours of non-stop footage all day for the next Sunday on the SBS television station........This could be very interesting.
