“This is Hong Kong. I was here when I was a little girl and I haven’t been back since. And I’m about to start on one of the most exciting journeys you can make on land which is through China, Mongolia and Russia on the Trans-Siberian Express. We’re going to end up in Moscow, where I was last in the mid-60s when I was a model, in the grip of the Cold War. I can’t wait to begin.”

Joanna Lumley


Joanna Lumley embarks on the world’s greatest train journey for this epic new three-part documentary series for ITV.

The series sees Joanna travel from East to West, departing from Hong Kong, across 5,777 miles of both Asia and Europe, through seven time zones, taking in an immense panorama of vistas and cultures, people and places, before her final arrival in Moscow.

“Her easy charm coupled with her wide-eyed wonder at all she sees makes her shows such relaxing and pleasant viewing. And who could tire of that absolutely fabulous voice?”
