Armed with a 1936 edition of Bradshaw's Handbook, Michael Portillo takes to the tracks to navigate the golden age of rail travel, when glamorous locomotives travelled at world-record speed through a discernibly modern era of mass consumption. As Art Deco cinemas and dance halls entertained millions, industrial Britain was thrown into unemployment and poverty as storm clouds gathered across the Channel.

Along the way, Michael stops at some of Britain's most beautiful cities, towns and secluded villages, meeting extraordinary people and hearing how the railways have shaped their lives.
