Product Description

Skadinavian Edition, PAL/Region 2 DVD: Subtitles: Danish. Following its television debut in 1971, Upstairs Downstairs quickly became one of television's most enduring achievements. Over five brilliant seasons, millions of enthralled viewers made 165 Eaton Place their home away from home. Upstairs, the Bellamy family negotiated the scandals and successes of the English aristocracy, while downstairs, their loyal staff took a much livelier approach facing the challenges of their own lives. Together, their stories made TV magic. Universally recognized as one of the most successful and important shows in television history, the landmark series Upstairs Downstairs received 9 Emmys , a Golden Globe and a Peabody , among numerous other awards. Its popular spin-off Thomas & Sarah followed the delightful up-and-down adventures of two former Bellamy employees as they made a go of it on their own in pursuit of extravagant dreams.

I enjoyed all five series of up/down as I call it. Social History as it was. I think it should be shown in schools to teach history in a more human context and not just textbooks fact and figures. I feel I understand my Grandmother better knowing what it was like as she was growing up, from the suffregette movement to the war and rationing etc. Excellent series.
The extras were a bit hit and miss, they hadn't read the scripts for the voice overs had they? But interesting to see them as they are now.

This is a truly great series. They don't make them like that anymore. I'll be very sorry when it's finished. However, it will be nice to watch it again at some future date. The acting on everyones part is superb. A finely drawn script and a great way to learn the history of the time. ( late 19th to early 20th century ).

I rediscovered this wonderful series after the ill-advised attempts to breath new life into it last year

For get the latter. The original is one of television's all-time pinnacles and sits alongside I Claudius, The Sopranos and Brideshead Revisited.

In series 5 you have 16 1 hour plays picking up life in Britiain post World War 1. The ghost of war, the aimlessness of the bright young things, the sense of betrayal between the social classes, the seeping decline of the aristocracy and a gradual shift in social expectations are all thoughtfully explored through the eyes of a Tory politician's aristocratic family and their house servants. Mesmerising performances all round, crisp direction and stunning production raise this series to the very highest levels of TV drama.

The DVD set is excellent quality with interesting bonus features.

The series was seen in a number of countries and now some slightly older people are delighted to be able to see again such fine acting, language and historical anecdotes.

Sadly series five is the final instalment from 165 Eaton Place... after the horrors of the First World War Series Four, We hit the roaring 20's, obviously you lose the Edwardian spirit of the previous years! But series five covers other historical events!! Fantastic entertainment!
