Comedian Alexander Armstrong always knew his family background was likely to be privileged (hence his penchant for velvet blazers), but he's keen to find out exactly how posh he is... Appropriately enough, Alexander's journey begins with Burke's Irish Landed Gentry, a register of Britain's landed families. He quickly finds his own name listed under his mother's family name, McCausland, and decides to follow this line to find out more. Moving up the family tree he finds a relative who holds an honoured position in the Royal household of the day. Delving into more family papers, Alexander finds a letter from a direct ancestor over two hundred years ago, complaining about the shortcoming of her wastrel eldest son Edward. Alexander discovers that Edward inherits his baronetcy from a cousin and that foul play is suspected. But who cares, he's an aristocrat! What oh, and what not.
