I recently watched something on BBC4 which I had never seen before.

Michael Portillo at Cromford Pond as seen in Great British Railway Journeys, Series 1, Episode 17.

Great British Railway Journeys - Series 1 BBC [DVD] [2010]
If your are interested in local history and the railways then you are going to love this program. It would appear that it was originally broadcast back in 2010. But not to worry as you can buy it on DVD.
In this episode Michael Portillo travels to Cromford and Derby where he will tell you about the Midland Hotel, Derby's Arboretum, The Silk Mill etc.

This DVD is available from Amazon :

Episode 17 is available to view on the BBC iPlayer until 1st May so you can watch it if you hurry up by clicking the link here :
