Below Stairs
00:36:58

The Downton Abbey service team are as critical a reason to the success of the show as they would be to the running to the actual estate. However, as the world modernises around them and social mobility is a realistic prospect, how will they respond? And what developments might have ensued since we last met them that could be paving the way for a new future? Anita Rani dives deep into the lives of the characters Below Stairs to find out how they take on the upcoming global and personal changes that are soon to befall them. 

 

Anita is joined by Production Designer Donal Woods, who shares the secrets of creating the Downton world.

Above Stairs
00:44:38

The events and dramas of the lives led by those above stairs has never been short of anything but eventful. 

For a family born into such a position, the pressure from society to maintain the correct order of things has always been of the utmost importance. However, those expectations are being questioned by those outside and amongst the inner circle as attitudes slowly start to shift. Will the new era bring the Crawley family an opportunity to adapt-and-thrive, or a battle they need to fight in order to survive? 

Anita Rani interrogates the cast of upstairs about their character’s journey and explores their wardrobes with Downton Abbey’s Costume Designer, Anna Mary Scott Robbins.

Downton Abbey in Context
00:32:08

Set at the end of the roaring twenties, but with the shadow of political divisions beginning to build in Europe, we’ll explore the historical context that the characters of Downton find themselves in. 

We’ll go behind the scenes with some of the most established members of upstairs and downstairs to discover how changes in society and culture have affected their characters in this new installment. We’ll quiz Downton’s historical advisor on the role of women, the writer on the twists and turns of the plot and what underlying historical moments will be responsible for reshaping the future of all.
