    《火車起革命》讓我們踏上了這個機車的奇妙歷史之旅。走訪世界各大洲,發掘個個獨特又不平凡的火車故事。先由當年英帝國一個雄心勃勃但尚未完工的開普敦-開羅的鐵路計劃說起,述說出帝國對非洲大陸的野心,甚至不惜人力物力在烏干達興建「瘋狂鐵路」;同樣艱鉅的美國洛磯山脈鐵路工程卻改變了美國;而印度次大陸的殖民地鐵路建設計劃,亦令印度成為今天全球第八大鐵路運輸機構的雇主和第四大鐵路網絡,每天載客量超過2200萬人次。這套紀錄片記錄了人類歷史發展的進程,從革命和戰爭,到非凡的技術和科學發展,揭示了火車如何幫助我們去定義這個世界。


    A captivating journey through the rich history of railways Since their invention, trains have changed the way we live. They have brought communities together, unified nations, shrunk continents, and become the power and reach on which whole empires have been built.“How Trains Changed the World” takes us on a fascinating journey through the history of this marvelous machine. It is a voyage of discovery through every continent of the world, each with its own unique stories to tell about “The Iron Horse”. From the Cape-to-Cairo railway, an ambitious yet unfinished project started by the British Empire to establish control over the African continent, a section of which still runs today as “The Lunatic Express”; to the extraordinary feats of engineering and endurance it took to drive a railway over – and through – the Rocky Mountains in the US; and the colonial railway building program in India, which forms the basis of what is, today, the fourth largest railway network and eighth largest employer in the world, carrying more than 22 million passengers every day. Charting the history of mankind itself, from revolution and war to extraordinary technological and scientific advances, this fascinating documentary reveals the story of how trains have helped to define our world.
