Berlin to the Rhine Michael Portillo travels through Germany, beginning his journey in Berlin - which at the beginning of the 20th Century was a powerhouse of science and technology. Led by his copy of Bradshaw's Continental Railway Guide of 1913, he heads west via the Harz Mountains to the industrial Ruhr Valley to learn how imperial Germany was ready for war. He then goes south along the tourist trail of the castle-studded Rhine river and ends in the Rheingau to taste the wines of its vineyards

Music
I enjoy these programmes except for the music which bangs away and has no relevence to the content. Sadly this is the case in so many interesting tv coverage.

Very enjoyable
Very enjoyable and educational. As a presenter Portillo is way ahead of Chris Tarrant.

Well done, Mr. Portillo.
In an ocean of vacuous 'Wow! and 'Amazing!' shrieking presenters, this is an absolute joy. Well paced, informative, and a very likeable presenter who genuinely seems more interested in putting his subject matter across than making it All About Him.

Worth Watching
MP comes across as a generous person really interested in what he encounters. I especially enjoyed the London episode with the historical input of the great city.
