Great British Rail Journeys


Great British Railway Journeys is another one of those "about Britain" series (Coast, Britain from Above) which in this case follows former "future Prime Minister" Michael Portillo on a series of rail trips and compares present day places against how they were described in Bradshaw's Railway Guide from the middle of the 19th century. This is (so far) two series of 20 and 25 half-hour episodes, so it is a significant time commitment. But if you want to see bits about how Britain works, along with a lot of rail porn, in the form of a travelogue, it is quite interesting.
