British Antiques Roadshow

Woburn Abbey (#2617)

Michael introduces the programme from Woburn Abbey and begins with a tour of the grounds. In the house he describes its history and connection with the family of the Russell's who have owned the property for 500 years. Michael reflects on the some of the main characters and builders who have shaped the Abbey and on how parts of the building have gone into decline. The Abbey has had to reinvent itself to create income to combat death duties and offset the enormous maintenance bill such a large house inevitably makes. [29 minutes] Closed Captioning
