SLOW TRAIN THROUGH AFRICA WITH GRIFF RHYS JONES (ITV, 9pm) GRIFF Rhys Moans is the first to admit he's got a temper. But you've got to feel sympathy when he's left waiting four hours to board a train in the second of his five-part epic journey across the vast continent.
Tonight, Griff is on the East African Railway, going 1,200 miles through Kenya and Tanzania.
He begins his journey on a vintage steam locomotive, that was designed in Glasgow. Along the way, Griff, pictured, stops to visit a cattle farm established by an aristocrat a century ago, where he helps to bathe more than 2,000 beasts. Later, in the massive Tsavo East National Park, he bottle-feeds orphaned elephant calves.
But back to that frustrating delay. Once the train finally leaves Nairobi station, it moves for a few moments before coming to a halt: "It's lost a little of its romance and glamour", Griff sighs.
Later, however, he is rewarded by the company of a very curious giraffe. Makes a change from leaves on the line.
