Country House Revealed

LIVING – Sunday 9 October, 9.30pm

The families of six of Britain’s greatest private country houses throw open their doors and release their secrets to historian Dan Cruickshank. From the Tudor ebullience of South Wraxall Manor to the rigour of Kinross in Scotland; the beauty of Hawksmoor’s Easton Neston to the palatial Georgian sweep of Wentworth Woodhouse; the Victorian exuberance of Clandeboye to the Edwardian ingenuity at Marsh Court, the properties exemplify the changing architecture and fortunes of the nation itself. No hat-box or trunk is left unturned as Dan teases out each home’s story.
