Michael Portillo's Great Railway Journeys

Michael Portillo's railway programmes are simply wonderful. With his extensive knowledge and charismatic presentation style, his shows delve into the history of railways, exploring beautiful countries and their unique cultures through the eyes of Bradshaw's railway guides. The programmes offer a fascinating glimpse into the changes that have taken place over the last century, showcasing the beauty of countries such as India, Eastern Europe, the British Isles, and America.

Portillo doesn't just focus on the most iconic railway journeys; he also takes us to lesser-known destinations, revealing hidden gems that few people have ever seen. His programmes offer a delightful blend of history, culture, and travel, making them an absolute must-see for anyone with a passion for railways, history, or travel.

If you haven't had the chance to watch his programmes, they are still available on BBC iPlayer, offering a wealth of entertainment and knowledge.
