Excellent Behind-The-Scenes of Downton
Review by Another C. on 05/02/21 review stating Excellent Behind-The-Scenes of Downton
Perfect for the fan of Downton Abbey as well as the history nerd. A perfect blend of actor commentary, historial narrative, and scenes from the show. The segments are broken down to deal with specific aspects of the show, but everything is still very cohesive and highly entertaining. A great buy!

Review by Cookie on 05/02/21 review stating INFORMATIVE AND ENTERTAINING VIDEO!
As confirmed fans of the Downton Abbey series, we found this video to be both informative and entertaining! Having seen it as a PBS special presentation, we were delighted when it was offered for purchase. Already it has been viewed several times, and each time we learn more about the etiquette of that era as well as background for the filming of the Downton Abbey series.
