Today Monday 28 November 2022 the show Highclere airs an episode called Behind The Scenes on More4

Behind The Scenes: This new series follows the highs and lows of the colorful modern-day Lord and Lady Carnarvon and their devoted staff as they attempt to make up for lost time with a busy calendar of events, with exclusive access to the real Downton Abbey – Highclere Castle. The famed house and gardens are reopening for Easter after being closed for nearly three years due to the pandemic.

This family-owned estate needs a strong start to their busy season to recover losses because operating costs are £10,000 per day, so it’s all hands on deck for the small team. Some Americans who arrived expecting a private tour of the renowned castle find Lady Carnarvon to be an unexpected tour guide. On one of the hottest days of spring, head butler Luis, who is accustomed to serving royalty and VIPs, manages the drinks and ice cream stand. In order to display a prized family heirloom, a vintage 1936 Rolls-Royce, Head of Visitor Reception Paul dons a chauffeur cap.

Castle manager John plans an egg hunt in the meantime and hopes the first significant event of the season goes off without a hitch. Horse grooms Maggie and Sam are kept busy raising Lord Carnarvon’s thoroughbred racing foals, which the Earl hopes will pay off one day, away from the chaos of the public opening. They are also utilizing the busy lambing season to advertise life on the estate to hundreds of thousands of social media users down on the farm. Will Lord and Lady Carnarvon and their hardworking team’s efforts pay off during the busiest weekend of the spring?
