We are quite sad at the prospect of no Downton Abbey until January 2013 so have been immersed in You Tube videos and past episodes on PBS. There are lots of interviews with the actors, tours of the castle by the creator of the series, Julian Fellowes and the historical advisor and expert on British aristocracy, Alistair Burke. It's fun to see the actors in modern day speech and clothing speak about their characters. Check out Downton Abbey You Tube videos here.
A tour by the Countess of Carnarvon who lives in Highclere Castle with her husband, whose family has owned the home since the 1600's, and their family.
