Description:
 What was life really like for the servants who worked below stairs in the era of Downton Abbey? In this first-person program, British domestic servant Margaret Powell, portrayed by Chicago historian Leslie Goddard, introduces life below stairs in stately English homes in the early 1920s. Based on Powell's best-selling memoir Below Stairs, this program gives a lively look at the work it took to run a wealthy household in this era and the eccentricities often found among employers.
