Comments about PBS Secrets of the Manor House DVD:

After seeing both Season 1 and Season 2 of Downton
Abbey, I was interested in how things really were
in that time period and especially in the great
British houses. This was a good start to my search.
It provoked lots of questions....and my search
continues about that period of history. I'll be
looking for other videos which add to my interest.

"Secrets" is fabulous!

Comments about PBS Secrets of the Manor House DVD:

As an avid viewer of Downton Abbey, and Upstairs, Downstairs before that, I have long been fascinated with the story lines. I purchased this DVD to show students in my college Sociology courses because it brings into focus all aspects of society -- not only British, but in all of Western Society. The obvious is the clash between social classes; however, since history and our own personal biolographies transect one another, changes that affect all people in Western societies are brought to the fore, such as WWI and the economic, political, legal and family structure transformations. This illustrates how society - and our lives - are always being transformed by what happens in the world; in this, we are helped to understand our place in society and, yet, and through that understanding, we are empowered to make choices and to change our own personal "biography!"

It brings light to the Have's and the the Have's not. A social cast system that is still practiced today
