Great British Railway Journeys on SBS – Great British Railway Journeys sees dapper dresser Michael Portillo taking a train ride through Britain’s fascinating post-war history.

That means exploring the Britain of his youth, criss-crossing the country by rail and taking a nostalgic look back at everything from the birth of space exploration, to the invention of the lava lamp, and all the highs and lows of British Rail through the post-war decades!

Episode One: Denham to Swindon

Beginning at London Marylebone, the last great Victorian railway terminus to be built in the capital, Michael embarks on a post-war exploration of Britain’s southern counties.

Continuing along the Chiltern line, Michael alights at High Wycombe, a historic centre of furniture-making thanks to its setting amid an abundance of beechwood forest. Then, he travels to Oxford to discover its local history.
