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

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

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.

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?

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.

Portillo Knows Nothing about Railways
He says that a steam loco designed in the late 1930s evokes the 'victorian era' - what a pratt!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
