Rhiane Fatinikun joined Michael Portillo in the latest episode of BBC Two's Great British Railway Journeys (Oldham to Wakefield), taking the Hope Valley Line to Edale in the Peak District. It was here in 2019 that Rhiane was inspired to take up hiking and came up with the idea for Black Girls Hike, a walking group and now a national charity encouraging black women to explore and embrace the great outdoors. Michael was thrilled Rhiane discovered her passion whilst admiring the countryside from the train window. You can watch their conversation and the programme in full on BBC iPlayer.
