Portillo's Travels

Timothy Belmont has not missed one episode of that splendid BBC series, Great British Railway Journeys.

Of course, the Right Honourable Michael Portillo, as a former Cabinet Minister and one of Her Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council, does the job marvellously.

This evening Mr Portillo, armed with his trusty Bradshaw's Victorian Railway Guidebook, arrives in Northern Ireland, as part of his grand railway tour of the British Isles.

His first stop is County Armagh, where Michael visits the city of Armagh and its observatory; and Downpatrick, in County Down.
