Entertaining and pleasant series,

This review is from: Great British Railway Journeys: Series 3 [DVD] (DVD)
Mr Portillo certainly knows how to charm the people whom he meets en route to some very interesting places. I have learnt so much about areas near my home. He has a smooth manner, very articulate diction and interesting colour schemes of jackets and shirts. The background music is not intrusive- unlike so many programmes these days - and the whole series is very relaxing. I am now awaiting his European Railway Journeys. He is a good listener, and does not patronise his guests, making everyone feel relaxed.
I first came across Mr Portillo when he made a documentary about areas of Spain, and I was very impressed. I hope that there are plenty more of such good quality DVDs like these.
