The Edwardian Country House is another living experiment from the makers of the 1900 House and The 1940s House. The Edwardian Country House follows a team of volunteers and a modern family who turn back the clock to recreate life as it was for the upper classes and their servants in a country house in 1910. It will tell the story, over three summer months, of an old-fashioned way of life that is quintessentially English: a glorious country manor, tea and croquet on the lawn, a patrician butler and a stable full of horses. But this picturesque historical tableau is of a group of people utterly divided and ruled by class. Do their ostensibly old-fashioned issues of money, power, and above all, class, still plague Britain today? This will be a major series and a high-profile book.
