Armed with a 1936 edition of Bradshaw's Handbook, Michael Portillo takes to the tracks to navigate the golden age of rail travel, when glamorous locomotives travelled at world-record speed through a discernibly modern era of mass consumption. As Art Deco cinemas and dance halls entertained millions, industrial Britain was thrown into unemployment and poverty as storm clouds gathered across the Channel.

This 8 DVD set features 40 episodes covering 8 different journeys:

Newcastle to Loch Ness
St. Ives to Salisbury Plain
Canterbury to Skegness
Oxford to Winchester
Saxmundham to Walsingham
Crewe to Newtown
Biggin Hill to Leeds Castle, Kent
Chislehurst to Westminster

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 journeys inspired by his guide, witnessing what's changed while celebrating our love of the railways. Along the way, Michael stops at some of Britain's most beautiful cities, towns and secluded villages, meeting extraordinary people and hearing how the railways have shaped their lives.
