bbc dramas.

 
I like old bbc dramas. The last one I watched was the Aristocrats. I liked it a great deal!  It was a 1999 tv show, based on the biography by Stella Tillyard of the five aristocratic Lennox sisters of the eighteenth century.

Reminds me of another series I quite like. Its called DOWNTON ABBEY. The series is set in the fictional Yorkshire country estate of Downton Abbey, depicts the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants in the post-Edwardian era—with the great events in history having an effect on their lives and on the British social hierarchy. Such events depicted throughout the series include news of the sinking of the RMS Titanic in the first series; the outbreak of the First World War, the Spanish influenza pandemic, and the Marconi scandal in the second series; the interwar period and the formation of the Irish Free State in the third series; and the Teapot Dome scandal in the fourth series.

I want to start watching Yes, Minister followed by Yes, Prime Minister. The series showed in the 1980s. Set principally in the private office of a British Cabinet minister in the (fictional) Department of Administrative Affairs in Whitehall, Yes Minister follows the ministerial career of The Rt Hon Jim Hacker MP, played by Paul Eddington. His various struggles to formulate and enact legislation or effect departmental changes are opposed by the British Civil Service, in particular his Permanent Secretary, Sir Humphrey Appleby, played by Nigel Hawthorne. His Principal Private Secretary Bernard Woolley, played by Derek Fowlds, is usually caught between the two. The sequel, Yes, Prime Minister, continued with the same cast and followed the events of the premiership of Jim Hacker after his unexpected elevation to Number 10 upon the resignation of the previous PM.

I do have my Anglophile tendencies. A times I tend to speak with a British accent ( but its obviously fake) that statement ‘’If I had a British accent I’d never shut up’’ certainly applies to me!
