The 82 Down De Luxe



The story of a train journey through India by JOSEPH HONE

If you really go all the way on the ' 82 Down de Luxe ' you start at Kipling's Simla in the snowy foothills of the Himalayas and end in the turkish bath of Calcutta three days and 1,500 miles later, a fair helping of some of the ' history and romance ' of India - if you're not in a hurry.

JOSEPH HONE made the journey and tonight's programme is a reflection of the trip, the places, and some of his fellow-travellers.
