The Pyrenees with Michael Portillo

Channel 5, 9pm

Michael Portillo’s pleasant perambulat­ions introduce us to those living alternativ­e

lifestyles on the French side of the mountains near Ariège. They include an abbey full of hardworkin­g nuns and a Luxembourg­er couple who swapped the rat race for pig farming. Along with heavenly shots of rural France, Portillo’s interest in others and his fascinatin­g rumination­s after a lifetime of service manage to keep this travelogue engaging.
