Michael Portillo is well known for exploring the world's great railways. Now he´s on a different type of journey as he travels the country to unearth the secrets of one of our best loved railways -The Somerset and Dorset - which closed amidst huge political, social and economic controversy in 1966.
On foot, bicycle and with the help of a stream train, Portillo follows the route of the old railway and meets those who worked on and remember the trains. His findings paint a unique picture of life in the sixties and finally bring this lost railway back to life.
