Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus is the central terminal for the world’s busiest railway (hence, the original title for this series, part of the BBC’s India season), and it is from this base where presenters Dan Snow, Anita Rani and Robert Llewellyn take viewers on a thrilling ride through Mumbai’s transport system. From exploring the system’s “mission control” center to following its users on their journeys, this four-part series gives you, from the relative comfort of your own home, a ringside seat for Mumbai’s rush hour, appropriately known there as “super dense crush load.”
