Passionate about trains, Michael Portillo charts the great British romance with the railways as he retraces four journeys that were first documented in the monthly railway guide, Bradshaw’s Handbook. He sees what’s changed and discovers how our love of the railways all began.

This 4 disc DVD set features 20 episodes covering the 4 different journeys:

Liverpool to Scarborough
Preston to Kirkcaldy
Swindon to Penzance
Buxton to London


Portillo makes stops on route to visit some of Britain’s most beautiful cities and hidden-away villages, meeting extraordinary people and hearing stories of how their lives have been shaped in some way by the railways. Throughout these monumental journeys, Portillo explores the secret ammunition factory at Gretna, sails the last steam boat on Lake Windermere, learns to talk ‘scouse’ in Liverpool, takes a dip in Bath Spa, cooks a traditional curry in Birmingham, tries his hand at oyster fishing in Cornwall and meets survivors of the Coventry Blitz.

Exactly the same thought came to mind... Not now silent singer, not now.

This is an excellent price - bought off Amazon a couple of days ago for £25!!!! :(

Passionate about trains? I find his delivery stilted and wooden. If you want passion about railways, canals, or our industrial heritage in general, then I'd recommend Mark Williams every time. He ad-libs amusingly as well, something Portillo would be hard put to do if he rehearsed all day!
