Barnes & Noble
Few shows in television’s vast pantheon have examined issues of class as adeptly as Britain’s Upstairs Downstairs. Set during World War I, the nine-time Emmy Award-winning series follows the travails of the aristocratic Bellamy family and their servant staff, who cohabit the opulent 165 Eaton Place. The fourth season covers a broad spectrum of storylines and plot twists, as the family confronts rising anti-German feelings, holds a tea party for wounded officers, and endures the tragic effects of the war. This four-disc set collects all 13 episodes from the show’s fourth season, considered by many to be its finest. Whether you’re a devoted fan or a first-timer, the compelling entourage at Eaton Place is sure to have you aching for more Upstairs Downstairs.

  • "News From the Front" - James Bellamy, on leave from battle, is drawn into a discussion of the war and how the Army is desperately in need of guns and ammunition.
  • "The Beastly Hun" - The sinking of the Lusitania arouses anti-German sentiment and causes the Bellamy servants to consider their own feelings when a local man is found to be of German origin.
