Michael Portillo's Great Railway Journeys is all rather lovely.

Gentle TV at its best, Michael cruises around the country in Planters dress, a riot of pink shirts and lime green blazers...He talks to people who would historically hate him like miners and industrial workers, using his nice but dim charms to win them over and hide his obvious intellect. His enthusiasm is infectious, and his knowledge is heart felt and readily shared.

Love this show, the man behind the Poll Tax is completing his rehabilitation in fine style.
