Season 1, Episode 29
Michael Portillo’s south east Asian railway tour reaches its final stop – Singapore. The island city-state at the southern tip of Malaysia is one of Asia’s biggest success stories.

The grand project reflects Singapore’s towering economic ambition. Back in the centre, Michael hears of the nation’s maritime roots and how Englishman Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles established the first port here in 1819.
