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

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

Middlesbrough to Hexham Michael Portillo begins the fourth leg of his journey from Derby to Lindisfarne in Middlesbrough, visiting one of the last iron foundries in the town and helping cast a carrot valve for a steam engine. His next stop is Darlington, Co Durham, where he meets the editor of the Northern Echo and finds out about the colourful history of WT Stead, one of his predecessors. Michael then heads to St Paul's monastery in Jarrow, Tyne and Wear, to learn about eighth-century monk the Venerable Bede, known as 'the father of English history', before finishing in Hexham, Northumberland, where he visits a historic ginger beer emporium
