About this programme

Sean Langan rides along East Africa's Tazara railroad, which was built to carry copper from Zambia to the Tanzanian port of Dar es Salaam. He learns why this train link is beset by problems including frequent derailments, engines running out of fuel and mechanical breakdowns. In addition to meeting crews, controllers and maintenance workers, he also tracks down the Chinese advisers to find out why the line is struggling.
