Royal Upstairs Downstairs

2011 BBC production starting with Chatsworth House - twenty 30 minute  episodes - six you can watch on YouTubeAvailable on DVD or your local library. 

From wikipedia -  "In each episode antiques expert Tim Wonnacott and chef Rosemary Shrager visited a country house or castle which had been visited in the 19th century by Queen Victoria. They told the story of Victoria's travels using her own diaries, other contemporary accounts, the household records of the stately homes, and contemporary illustrations". 

"Wonnacott examined items of art and furniture seen and often commented on by Victoria. Shrager examined how the servants coped with the demands of a royal visit, and cooked Victorian dishes".
