This Sunday, January 6, the Edwardian TV drama Downton Abbey returns to PBS for its third season. Perhaps you are like so many other people who are anxious to learn what will happen to the Crawleys.
The location of Downton Abbey is really Highclere Castle, seventy-five miles southwest of London.
Mac Capen, a communication studies senior at Bridgewater State University, and I have produced a video trailer for my book America’s Romance with the English Garden. I am including it here [below] for you to enjoy. It lasts about two and a half minutes.
The video begins with reference to the opening shot of Downton Abbey, with its classic front lawn designed by Lancelot Capability Brown in the eighteenth century.
Here it is: “>video book trailer
Ohio University Press will publish the book in May.
I enjoyed putting the video book trailer together. The production experience was like a puzzle; we took it piece by piece.
You can also find this video book trailer on YouTube.
Feel free to share it with your friends.
Happy New Year.
