Simon Davies usually drives the high-speed service between London and Manchester, but faces a different challenge as he heads to Peru, where thousands of tons of metal ores are transported from the peaks of the Andes every day. Coached by locals of the same occupation, he risks derailment on spectacular slopes, and encounters a community in crisis, being poisoned by mining-industry pollution. Last in the series

The first two were 'Toughest place to be a Bin Man' and '...Fisherman' I found both very interesting.

One thing BBC got right is its IPlayer, you at least have a week to catchup if not longer.

LOL, just shows how much I use IPlayer.  I most thoroughly recommend episode 1 'Bin Man'

Cheers Shutter, the OH reminded me about it so I had a double whammy tonight on BBC2 - Top Gear and then some train stuff! What a great evening of TV!
Gotta love the railways... big lumps of heavy metal rolling around on two thin bits of metal... no-one can explain it but its fascinating.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
