TOP 500 REVIEWERon 10 June 2009
This almost sixty-minute DVD was produced in 2005 and is subtitled "the grandest country house in all England". Oh yeah?

The film is narrated by the twelfth Duke of Devonshire, who outlines a concise history of the house, gardens, and estate, together with reference to his ancestors. We see his late father and his wife Deborah reading and talking in the library. The tour of the house and gardens includes details of various artistic treasures - paintings, sculpture, clocks, carvings, furniture, tapestries, china - and there is quite a bit about Joseph Paxton's work in the gardens. Indeed, to me, there is as much time spent in the gardens as in the house.

Filmed through the year's seasons, this is a well-produced souvenir portrait of certainly one of the grandest houses in all England.
