Some of you avid (hmm…) readers of this blog will recall that I outed myself as a rail enthusiast. Well, recently I’ve found myself enjoying Michael Portillo’s Great British Railway Journeys on BBC, to the extent I now own the first two series on DVD. Although rail is his means of transport, it’s perhaps fair to say that it is more of a tour of the UK, rather than a homage to the railway.
However, it is excellent television and is fast becoming my guilty pleasure; a couple of episodes each evening before going to sleep.
If you’ve not watched it, it really is well worth a listen.
