Summary, etc.:
What goes on behind-the-scenes to get the manners of 1900s Britain exactly right on Downton Abbey? Enter the world of Edwardian manners with host Alastair Bruce, historian, expert on royal ceremony and custom, and the historical advisor to the hit drama series. This one-hour documentary features revealing interviews with leading cast members, including Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery, Elizabeth McGovern, Laura Carmichael, Joanne Froggatt, Brendan Coyle, Sophie McShera, and many others. Discover the secrets of how the aristocratic set dined and dressed, how they married and made money, how they interacted with the servants (and the servants interacted with each other), and above all why they behaved as they did. Illustrated with memorable moments from Downton Abbey, the program is a treat for fans and anyone fascinated with the customs of early 1900s Britain.
