Blenheim Palace: Great War House


Thursday 2 October 2014


Writer Julian Fellowes delivers a vivid account of how one of the greatest ancestral homes in England was transformed by the First World War in Blenheim Palace: Great War House. By delving into archives and speaking to experts and relatives of the house’s inhabitants, the author and creator of Downton Abbey tells the stories of the real men and women who worked and lived at Blenheim during the war. He discovers tales of heroism and tragedy, both upstairs and downstairs, and how WW1 was the making of Blenheim’s most famous son, Winston Churchill. Fellowes learns about the ladies of the household, Consuelo Vanderbilt and Lady Sarah Wilson and the men who went to war including the fate of a lowly clerk.

James Norton plays the role of Sidney Chambers in this new six- part drama. Robson Green joins him as plain speaking, over-worked Police Inspector, Geordie Keating. Set in 1953 in the beautiful county of Cambridgeshire, Sidney’s unlikely partnership with gruff, down to earth Geordie is central to Grantchester. Geordie’s methodical approach to policing complements Sidney’s more intuitive techniques of coaxing information from witnesses and suspects. They are partners in crime and forge a true friendship as each offers a different insight into the crimes they begin to unravel.

This brand new documentary series follows eight very different British households in their kitchens, as the cameras keep rolling. Capturing the modern spirit of family life, viewers will see the them cook and eat together, preparing everything from microwaved ready-meals, shovelled down in front of the TV, to four-course feasts served with the finest.
