Description

Treasure Houses of Britain on DVD

Discover the rich history of England's great country homes with intimate visits to Burghley House, Chatsworth, Blenheim Palace, Holkham Hall, and Boughton House, all shot in dazzling high-definition. Accompanied by their present occupants, journalist Selina Scott tours the properties, examining the architectural wonders, paintings, furniture, tapestries, sculptures, and other works of art accumulated over the centuries, including a pietra dura gifted to an English nobleman by the powerful Medici family and the wealth of 'England's Versailles.' Each of these magnificent houses tells the story of the influential families who lived there, from the Earls of Leicester to Winston Churchill's ancestors. Join Scott as she discovers the astonishing affluence and fascinating stories behind these cherished properties. Explore the parlors, suites, and grounds of homes that are more than simply architectural masterpieces: they're snapshots of the tastes and sensibilities of bygone eras and part of the fabric of the nation's history. Selina Scott has been a respected broadcast journalist in the U.K. for over 30 years. A trailblazing female news presenter, she has hosted television programs at the BBC, ITV, CBS, and NBC and today advocates for causes such as countryside preservation.
