“Don’t be defeatist dear, it’s very middle class”

Downton Abbey, and Dame Maggie Smith as the Dowager Countess of Grantham, is back on NRK this coming Sunday! Until October 5th, at nrk.no you and your class may take a peek at what goes on behind-the-scenes to get the manners of 1900s Britain exactly right on Downton Abbey. Enter the world of English etiquette with host Alastair Bruce, historian, expert on royal ceremony and custom, and the historical advisor to the hit drama series.

We also take this opportunity to remind you of the article and teaching material Tore Rem made for us on the series, and the sample answers belonging to it. Enjoy!
