Richard Bacon at Downton Abbey for filming


Richard Bacon visited the Downton Abbey set on Monday to get the latest on the new series.

Set against a backdrop of World War I, Highclere Castle in Hampshire will see the arrival of dashing young officers who will further complicate the love lives of the Crawley sisters.

Hugh Bonneville, who plays their father, the Earl of Grantham, tells Richard more of what we can expect from the series.
