‘Great British Railway Journeys’ Visits Totnes This Wednesday
You may remember from a previous Transition Culture post that last September Michael Portillo passed through Totnes as part of filming for his new series of ‘Great British Railway Journeys’. The resultant programme, in which he gets a ride in a biodiesel rickshaw, spends Totnes Pounds and hangs out with me in the graveyard, will be shown on this Wednesday on BBC2 at 6.30pm. Speculation is rife as to whether or not the final sequence will include Pete Ryland, founder of the Totnes Rickshaw Company and his driver for the day, telling Portillo “I’ve had far more famous people than you in the back of this rickshaw Michael”! If you miss the programme, you’ll be able to see it on BBC iPlayer for the next 7 days.
