Great Continental Railway Journeys: Series 5, DVD DVD

Great Continental Railway Journeys: Series 5 DVD



The fifth series of the BBC documentary following Michael Portillo as he travels around Europe and the wider world taking as his guide the 1913 pamphlet 'Bradshaw's Continental Railway Guide'.

Produced by cartographer George Bradshaw, the pamphlet documents a number of railway journeys and the various towns and hamlets along the way.

With an eye to local cultures and traditions and the role each journey and the trains themselves played in the development of world history, Portillo revisits the locations described in the journal and reflects on the changes a century has wrought.

The episodes are: 'Transylvania to the Black Sea', 'Zermatt to Geneva', 'Tangier to Marrakech', 'Genoa to the Brenner Pass', 'Riga to Tampere' and 'Rotterdam to Utrecht'.
