A very good documentary and an incredibly strange incident.

That sounds like the plot to a Steven Seagal movie.

The documentary reminded me of the film Matewan (1987) with Chris Cooper.

“America’s First Football Hooligan”.

It’s on Vice’s YouTube Channel.

It’s like performance art.

@superdave. Just watching Portillo’s Canadian rail trip programme on BBC 2. Would you prefer Portillo or Palin for the railway docs?
I could agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.

I think I like Portillo's shows in spite of him rather than because of him. He gets some great scenery and background to the area, but a lot of his interviews are very cheesy.

He is an unbelievable ****, but I enjoy Portillo on them. He makes them.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

That has very hard viewing, it's obvious Derek is suffering badly mentally and should never have been in the position to take part in that documentary.

All in all it was absolutely sh*te and 25 minutes of my life I will never get back.

I agree. It wouldn't be the same with Palin over him. In fairness, they're different concepts. Palin's are more about the actual travel whereas Portillos are much more about the arcana of small-town places and what made them a hundred years ago and what still makes them. The show is more about comparisons between 100 years ago and now than it is about the actual experience of travel. Palin's shows tend to be somewhat different but no less enjoyable for it. Portillo's shows wouldn't work as well with Palin, and Palin's wouldn't work as well with Portillo.

There's a couple from London who have done a whole heap of railway youtube videos, including one where they visit all the stations in GB then last year all the stations in Ireland. They have decent enough production values too even if they are themselves a bit nerdy. In fairness though, that's to be expected from a couple making youtube videos on trains. They've done the longest possible journey on the UK rail network on the summer solstice (Penzance to Aberdeen) and the shortest on the winter solstice (some weird tram job thing in the Midlands somewhere). Their videos are generally worth watching. They've a couple of great videos from Corrour (that bleak Highlands part of Trainspotting). The youtube channel is called All The Stations. I've watched a decent number of them and they're entertaining, in particular when they go to places like the West Highland Line and Cornwall. They have the same nose for the lesser-spotted things in our midst, like the mini-series they do on the least-used stations on each line or in each county in England. They don't have the same budget as Palin or Portillo (obviously enough) but the series is none the worse for it.

I remember Palin doing a programme where he was doing the train journey across the top of Africa. He was going from Egypt to Morocco I think. Some interesting bits on that, border crossings and the like.
I could agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.
