While this was somewhat interesting it definitely was not what I expected or was looking for. It's mainly a history of the Cavendish family with an occasional look at the house. They talk about notorious members of the family and ignore the rooms and the art and the sculpture. I kept waiting for them to actually say so and so painted this or this happened here and this is why this was done. They did better on the gardens but even there spent a lot of time on a building that is no longer there. Quite a disappointment. Wish I'd seen it on PBS so I'd've known not to waste my money on it. Guess I should have bought the 25 year old tour instead! I think the same Duke (then Marquess of Hartingdon) did the tour guiding.

Good documentary. I just came back from England and visiting Chatsworth. It was beautiful! I learned quite a bit more by watching this and even saw some of the rooms I actually went through which was exciting.

It's in DVD format and rather poor resolution for todays high definintion TVs, but still a compelling story. If it was remastered in Blu Ray, I'd buy another copy. Good gift for those with limited TV choices.

I watched this several times and bought it because I kept catching on parts of it on PBS. Gorgeous building and grounds! Very happy they're not my responsibility

This is just one of the "Secrets of the manor house" & I loved it and bought all.

Having watched an English documentary on English Castles "Chatsworth" is one that I want to see on my next trip to England.

This is a well done history of Chatsworth. Great photography and commentary. Only thing better would be to actually visit the site.
