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

You will be missing out on places to see and interesting facts. Worth watching IMHO.

Awful
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.

Hessle to York Michael Portillo begins this leg of his journey in the East Yorkshire town of Hessle, where he learns about the technology that made the Humber Bridge possible. In nearby Hull, Michael hears from local MP Alan Johnson about anti-slavery campaigner William Wilberforce, before travelling to Scarborough Castle, where the founder of the Quaker movement was once imprisoned. His last stop of the day is York, where he learns what made the city a centre for the sweet-making industry
