GREAT BRI­TISH RAIL­WAY JOUR­NEYS

SBS, 7.30pm

Herald Sun - Hit - - TOP PICKS -

The Rail­way Jour­neys fran­chise has be­come SBS’s an­swer to Two and a Half Men — the show that is in al­most con­stant re­peats. So it’s pleas­ing to re­port that tonight sees the start of a new, fifth sea­son of Michael Por­tillo’s trav­els. Yes, he is wear­ing a pink jacket. Yes, it is matched with a lime green shirt. But Por­tillo is in se­ri­ous ter­ri­tory as he starts his jour­ney in Manch­ester — the cot­ton mill cap­i­tal of the world in the 1800s, where work­ers en­dured hor­ren­dous con­di­tions.
