This engaging 3-part series provides an access-all-areas experience inside one of Britain's most majestic stately homes. What is life like today for the 12th Duke of Devonshire who inherited the estate which has been in his family for 450 years? What really transpires behind closed doors? What is life like for the staff of 700 who work on the premises? With all the characters you'd expect to find in a great house, like the head housekeeper who maintains the 300 rooms, and the gamekeepers whose pheasants end up on the dining table, this series is a fascinating look at class and tradition in a modern world that plays out like a real-life Downton Abbey.
