Michael Paterson revisits the British country house in the years before the First World War, looking at the history of the aristocracy's domestic arrangements as well as the lifestyles of the people living and working - and staying as guests - in these great houses. He explores the myths and the realities of life for owners and servants in the so-called 'golden age', and ends by discussing the changes wrought by war and economics.
