Great Houses with Julian Fellowes, 9.00pm, UTV

In this new series, Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes tells the true stories of those who lived and worked in many of Britain's great houses. The servants were the lifeblood of any great house, and often had the best tales to tell. Descendants of previous inhabitants of the house and those living and working there today hear the stories Julian discovers about their predecessors. The first episode sees Julian visit Burghley House in Lincolnshire, which has been the home of the descendants of William Cecil, the first Lord Burghley, for 500 years. Lord Burghley was the iron fist behind the throne of Queen Elizabeth I.
