Great Continental Railways Journeys: Series 1 - 5
Clad in his trademark colourful jackets, Michael Portillo embarks on a series of railway adventures which take him through the European continent – and beyond!
Steered by his 1913 Bradshaw's Continental Railway Guide, Michael journeys through a pre-war age of emperors, kings, pomp and elegance – across a continent whose industrialists had created wealth, whose scientists were discovering the marvellous and whose artists were challenging old ways... whilst intellectuals plotted revolution.
