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
B Whyke 7:56pm Thu 15 May
You will be missing out on places to see and interesting facts. Worth watching IMHO.
bemused 11:27pm Tue 8 Apr
Portillo acts like an over-excited immature jerk. We couldn't watch any more after 5mins.

Production values
The BBC still does this kind of program extremely well. Horizon, Coast, Life on Earth - meticulously researched, well directed and presented, superbly photographed.

zxr805 12:59pm Tue 5 Feb
Did I miss something or is it correct that when Mr Portillo went to York, he did not visit or even mention the NATIONAL RAIL MUSEUM there?
trog 6:34pm Mon 28 Jan
Thank goodness...
Mr Portillo is better at TV presenting than he was at politics - though the railways are the real winners! A very pleasant programme.
Mr Oleo Strut 6:00pm Tue 15 Jan
Portillo Knows Nothing about Railways
He says that a steam loco designed in the late 1930s evokes the 'victorian era' - what a pratt!
Chuffer 7:59pm Tue 4 Dec
classical television
a true great - a show that has a gentle relaxed aura that is both informative and interesting - so remote from all the others fronted by celebrity egotists.
doubletake 9:19am Tue 17 Jul
A treasure of a programme
Michael Portillo is truely wonderful. A gentle, polite and warm programme filled with social history, architecture, wonderful scenery, archived film (a real gem) and interesting stories and interviews. The BBC at it's best and a triumph for Mr Portillo. Please can we have more.
Betty 6:53pm Tue 5 Jun
Finally, some really Great Britain...
These brief civilised episodes make you long for an extended version - maybe two or three stiched together. What a decent human Mr Portillo is and what a contrast to the insane ravings of, oh, I don't know, how about 'Mr Angry' see below...what a prize berk!
Movie Lover 7:36pm Wed 9 May
I hope this programme is shown in schools - it covers gently so much - geog, history, economics, politics, social change and more. Thank you Mr P.
Sadie 12:08pm Wed 22 Feb
A Grand Day Out
Tired of vacuous air-heads? Thumping background music, dizzy camera work and inane presenters who shout complete drivel at you? Welcome to a relaxing day out with Mr Portillo. Wonderful. Just wonderful.
Sheila 10:19am Wed 22 Feb
Michael Portillo Railway Journeys
Another splendid series! We have learnt much about the Railways, the history, geography and industries affected by them. More please! From the music to the scenery, the commentary and the interest we have once again been delighted by this programme.
Rosy Railway Fan 4:25pm Tue 21 Feb
Nice one.
A very good way to see our superb countryside and heritage. By rail.
MGJohn 7:01pm Wed 4 Jan
Portillo rocks

nelly 5:19pm Mon 2 Jan
Does anyone know the name of the Cheshire cheese company in Wrexham please, as I would like to order some online if possible. Many thanks.

We visited Chester after watching his programme!
I have just had a lovely weekend in Chester on the strength of this programme. What he lacked as an MP we have gained in his informative and interesting programmes. More of the same please!!!
Pottypolly 5:37pm Mon 2 May

What do you mean, Episode 25 of 25
Just when I was enjoying Michael Portillo's easy to listen to narrative. A wonderful way to explore the country. An excellent programme but over far too soon.
Mirfee 7:15pm Fri 4 Feb
Supper, what supper?
What a fantastic series, we have had to move supper to a later date to ensure we watch these excellent and very informative programmes. 10/10!

glenalmond 7:08pm Tue 1 Feb
TV at its best
We'd love to hate Portillo. but just can't. What a great broadcaster enthusing us with a unique gentle style. This is informative, brilliantly shot and over too quick.
Terence Flanborne 7:02pm Tue 1 Feb

Jennifer 1:45pm Tue 1 Feb

That's immigration for you.
True Blue 11:47am Thu 17 Jun
Very Good
Really enlightening to see someone on TV with on above average IQ presenting a very enjoyable program. Well done BBC.
Ray Pists 5:34pm Tue 15 Jun
Very Good
Such a same that Britain has been ruined by immigration.
Packy Stan 11:21pm Sun 13 Jun
I love a good old train journey as much as the next recovering alcoholic, but this programme was rather tedious. Please pass me the Gin.
Terry Vision 10:03pm Sun 14 Mar
Why is there nothing good on at the weekend!?
Bobbydazzler 10:19pm Sun 28 Feb
I mean really, what a load of old poo
poomeister 7:10pm Sun 28 Feb
Loved it
I liked the music, loved the series and the presenter. Whoever came up with idea from the series brilliant?
ETian 2:36pm Wed 3 Feb
I never knew Britain was so boring!
Choo Choo! 7:00pm Thu 28 Jan
Sunday TV?
Why is this scheduled for early weekday evening, it is supremely suited to the Sunday slot. As it is, I always end up seeing bits of it while cooking or eating, which is a pity, as it looks very pleasant, and I would like to be able to hear a little more of Michael Portillo's commentary. It is good to see him as a successful presenter, it means he won't be tempted to stand for Parliament again.
