This early 20th century handbook opened up an exotic world to the Edwardian tourist; from glittering cosmopolitan cities, dramatic Alpine landscapes, to warm sparkling seas and picturesque villages. Following in their footsteps, Michael visits the towns, cities and villages listed by his Bradshaw’s guide. Travelling from station to station he stays in the recommended hotels, explores the magnifi cent sights, samples local traditions, takes in many of the continent’s most spectacular rail routes and visits some of the central locations in the unfolding Great War story. This series creates a stunning vision of Europe as it was in 1913 and discovers how a way of life and a landscape were changed forever when Europe went to war.

He was fascinated with the first series & watched it the DVD from start to finish.
Michael Portillo is a great presenter retracing the history of train travel of a bygone era in numerous European countries up until the present. The scenery, especially of the Alp is awe inspiring.
Thanks must go to Amazon.com.au for their wonderful delivery service.
