The great homes of Edwardian England are on display in this documentary produced and directed by Susannah Ward. The British manor house, in its heyday 100 years ago, provided shelter for the wealthy and privileged families. The documentary goes into two of these homes - Manderston in Berwickshire and Dunham Massey, the former home of the Earl of Stamford. The programme provides history and context behind the costume dramas that Masterpiece has brought to life, including `Upstairs, Downstairs' and `Downton Abbey'.
Starring Samuel West
