Series Premiere: Friday 2nd January

New to PRIME, this trio of observational documentaries follows three aristocratic families as they struggle to hang on to their historic homes. Though their lifestyle is assumed to be idyllic, a constant battle with roof leaks, falling visitor numbers and mounting debts all put pressure on their personal relationships and their peace of mind. The three films are shot over 12 months – a critical year in the families’ fight to save their homes.

When the Dent-Brocklehursts inherited Sudeley in the 1960s it was a mess. They have struggled to turn it into a successful tourist attraction, but visitor numbers are plummeting and the castle is losing money every year.
