Billy Connolly's Tracks Across America

Welcome to an epic journey that puts Billy Connolly in the company of three things he loves dearly – trains, America and his banjo.

In these three episodes, Billy Connolly will circumnavigate the four corners of the United States on the magic carpet made of steel that is America's rail network.

Beginning in Chicago and finishing in New York, Billy will head into the vast and astonishing landscapes that make up America's backyard. An epic 26 states and over 6,000 miles of cities, coast, mountains, desert and swamp.

Rich in the romance of the American dream, this is a travelogue in the tracks of the pioneers who built a nation. A glimpse into modern America and the states we rarely get to see onscreen. It's a journey rich in people and places, chock-a-block full of moments you could only have in the company of Billy Connolly, a man who can move you to laughter and tears on the turn of a dime.

A series painted in visuals straight from the silver screen, with Billy on the banjo strumming along to the ‘chug chug' rhythm of the ride.
