Follow Michael Portillo as he travels around Europe taking as his guide the 1913 pamphlet 'Bradshaw's Continental Railway Guide'. Produced by cartographer George Bradshaw, the pamphlet documents a number of European 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 European history, Portillo revisits the locations described in the journal and reflects on the changes a century has wrought.
