The Screen Guide

When 'The Ghan' arrived in Darwin on the afternoon of Tuesday February 3 2004, it was a moment of great significance for the people of the NT, and indeed all Australians. It marked the completion of the first transcontinental rail journey from south to north. It meant that long-held dreams had come alive and that new dreams and new hopes were created. Mark Bowling was aboard 'The Ghan', and his half-hour ABC documentary, commemorates this extraordinary moment in Australia’s history.
