Secrets of Chatsworth Previous Broadcasts

KQED 9: Sun, Aug 21, 2016 -- 8:00 PM

Over five centuries, Chatsworth Estate has been passed down through 16 generations of the Cavendish family and is presently the home of the current 12th Duke of Devonshire and his family. We discover the stories throughout its 500 years that have shaped the history of Chatsworth into the acclaimed and distinguished house it has become today. So rich are some of the tales, they have even caught the imagination of Hollywood, The Duchess was the story of Lady Georgiana Spencer and her ill-fated marriage to the the 5th Duke, although their marriage was a great dynastic match, their personalities were entirely unsuited and they lived together with Lady Elizabeth Foster, Georgiana's close friend in a menage a trois.
Chatsworth even links to American President, John F Kennedy who came to visit his sister, Kathleen Kennedy after she was tragically killed in a plane crash and buried in the grounds of Chatsworth. Kathleen was married to Billy Cavendish, son and heir to the 10th Duke of Devonshire. So how does it really feel to live and work in such an opulent house with so much colorful history? We take a look behind the doors of the house and stroll around the vast gardens and estate, talking to the Duke and Duchess to find out the real truth behind Chatsworth.
