Armed with an early 20th century edition of Bradshaw's Railway Handbook, Michael Portillo takes to the tracks to navigate a vibrant and optimistic Britain at the height of its power and influence in the world - but a nation wrestling with political, social and industrial unrest at home.

This 3 DVD set features 15 episodes covering 3 different journeys:

Warrington to Stoke-On-Trent
Newry to Connell Ferry
Warwick to Rye

Passionate about trains, Michael Portillo continues to chart the great British romance with the railways in this phenomenally successful series. Steered by George Bradshaw's famous railway handbook, he retraces three journeys inspired by his guide, witnessing what's changed and celebrating our love of the railways. Michael stops at some of Britain's most beautiful cities and secluded villages, meeting extraordinary people and hearing how their lives have been shaped by the railways.

This complete tenth series sees Michael rambling in the beautiful Peak District, trying his hand at clay spinning, discovering a lighthouse built by railway engineer Robert Stevenson, messing about in boats on Thames, finding comedy at the home of British cinema, investigating the high-octane sport of whippet racing and endeavouring to understand the appeal of a dark Edwardian spread which is loved – and hated – all over Britain!
