Balcombe Tunnel Murder
Really found the part about the railway murder on the train very interesting! Has a book been written about this case

Best programmes on tv
If I was cast away on a desert island I would take ALL Michael Portillo's Great Railway Journey programmes. Michael is so easy to listen to and informative.

Great British Railway Journeys.
I really like Michael Portillo. He always has a smile on his face & it makes me smile too. He knows a lot about the railways almost as much as George Bradshaw. I am sure Mr Portillo must enjoy presenting this great programme more than being in parliament

A good program.
Informative and well filmed. How can this and the drivel of Eastenders be shown by the same corporation, for that is what it is.

Although l have little time for him politically the program was well presented and interesting and the negative comments were more party political not genuine

Buxton to Matlock Michael Portillo embarks on the first leg of a journey to London from Buxton, Derbyshire, where he discovers how railways inspired a building craze and boosted tourism. In the Peak District, he joins a team of volunteers repairing damage done to ancient peat landscapes during the Industrial Revolution, and near the quarries of Stanton Moor he learns how trains transported Derbyshire's famous sandstone all over England
