"This spectacular series demonstrates eloquently how the small screen can win out artistically over the cinema". As the first major costume drama written especially for British TV, award-winning UPSTAIRS DOWNSTAIRS was an outstanding success. It became one of the best-loved and most acclaimed dramas of all time and now the 8 colour episodes from the 1st series are yours to enjoy in this sumptuous collection. Set at the beginning of the 20th century, UPSTAIRS DOWNSTAIRS portrays the turbulent lives of the Bellamy family (upstairs) and their loyal and lively servants (downstairs). The joy and tears of the residents of elegant Eaton Place are portrayed here at a time when social reform was sweeping the nation and the Victorian era was challenged from all sides as Britain faced the daunting spectre of the First World War. Includes the episodes - "On Trial", "Magic Casements", "I Dies From Love", "Why Was Her Door Locked?", "A Voice From the Past", "The Swedish Tiger", "The Key of the Door" and "For Love of Love". Starring Pauline Collins, Gordon Jackson, Nicola Pagett, Jean Marsh, Georgia Brown, Angela Baddeley, Rachel Gurney, David Langton, Patsy Smart, Evin Crowley, Christopher Beeny, Simon Williams and Ian Ogilvy.
