With unique access to names of note and notoriety, this two-part documentary opens a window onto a so-called privileged world, as aristocrats share their daily lives and give their own views about their place in a changing society. Offering an insight into one of the most infamous father and son relationships across the Irish sea, the first film follows a story of reconciliation and redemption. 'Sunny', 11th Duke of Marlborough, is 86 years old, courteous and fastidious, and is a former Guards Officer. And then there's his 59-year-old son Jamie. Having beaten his drug addiction, he is back living at Blenheim, hoping to prove he is fit to take on the running of the estate, which attracts 500,000 visitors annually.
