Returning for a another season, Michael Portillo's Great
Continental Railway Journeys is back on BBC 2 from Friday 16th
October at 9pm. Guided by George Bradshaw's 1913 handbook to
continental rail travel, the programme follows Michael Portillo to
a series of fascinating locations, all accessed by railway routes
that have run since the Edwardian era. With past episodes exploring
destinations as diverse as Taormina, Copenhagen and Monte Carlo,
the latest in the series promises new horizons and window-seat
views, from places including Istanbul, Vienna and Trieste,
providing a televisual treat for travel-lovers.
