Kathy Wilson will give us a look at the "downstairs" of Downton Abbey, September 27th, 6pm.  What was life really like below the stairs at a place like Downton Abbey?  Could the chauffeur really marry the daughter of an Earl?  Would a maid help move a dead body to protect her mistress' reputation?  Historian Kathy Wilson reveals the answers to these questions and more in this program, focusing on the realities of domestic service at Highclere Castle, the real Downton Abbey, during the early 20th century.
