Just watched my first episode of this show, and the host's arrogance is astounding. He waxes large on Britain's "contributions" to building a railroad, and then spends most of the rest of the episode criticizing local efforts to maintain it, denigrating all efforts and demeaning the locals and everything local that he encounters. I watch travel shows on PBS to get ideas for future trips, and I am gathering nothing from this pap other than it might be worthwhile to take the same trip to find out its positives.
