The Aristocracy series was originally aired on the BBC. Each episode explores a period in the history of Britain's noble classes. Focusing on the decline of this class in the modern world, each tape offers a glimpse into a world only the privileged are intimately familiar with. In this particular episode, viewers explore the years between WWI and WWII. Accustomed to lives of privilege, the aristocracy of the day found themselves heavily taxed and looked upon with some disdain. As their power slipped due to their loosening grip on Parliament, Britain's monied elite were fading in glory. ~ Rob Ferrier, Rovi
BBC: The 1920s and 1930s were the 'Brideshead years.' Aristocrats recall house parties, hunting and scandal and London society. But, as war approached, their world began to change forever.
