It’s official: SBS are releasing a 17-hour cut of ‘The Ghan’

It was Australia’s first taste of ‘slow TV’, and 400,000 of us were left wanting more.

Much, much more.

If you didn’t catch it, here’s the primer: The Ghan was a mostly-silent 3-hour broadcast of the iconic train as it meandered along the track between Adelaide and Darwin.

That’s it. Just a train moving through the outback.

It was meant to be boring. But people went bonks over it.

On Wednesday afternoon, SBS made it official – they are extending the original 3-hour version of The Ghan… by 14 hours. Check out the hilarious new promo in the player above (readers outside Australia can find it here).

We can’t wait!
