165 Eaton Place
A Tribute to a TV Classic

Welcome to my NEW "Upstairs Downstairs" tribute page. For those unfamiliar with this slice of classic television, "Upstair Downstairs" or "UpDown" as devoted fans call it aired here in the USA on PBS' Masterpiece Theatre from 1971 to 1975.
The UK-produced series followed the lives of both the family and the servants in a London townhouse at 165 Eaton Place. Richard Bellamy, the head of the household, is a member of Parliament, and his wife Lady Marjorie a member of the titled aristocracy. Below stairs, Angus Hudson, the Scottish butler directs and guides the other servants about their tasks and (sometimes) their proper place. Real-life events from 1903-1930 are incorporated into the stories of the Bellamy household.

Below is Season One's (1971-1972) cast:
