Have mercy
Please, please etc use your air time to broadcast something other than Sweetie Portillo. I hesitate to think what inducements he's offered to the schedulers but really, enough's enough.

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

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

Manchester to Birkenhead Armed with a copy of George Bradshaw's Victorian Railway Guidebook, Michael Portillo embarks on another journey around the country to discover how the railways have affected people and communities, and the legacy they have left behind. He begins in Manchester, where he finds out how the world's first industrialised city produced a revolutionary political movement, and learns about the railway workers who founded one of the most successful football clubs of all time. Along the way, the presenter does the washing in Port Sunlight - a model village on the Wirral - and hears stories about the aptly named George Francis Train's time in Birkenhead, Merseyside
