Jean Marsh, who played Rose in the TV series Upstairs Downstairs, reads John Hawkesworth's classic novelisation.

It is 1905, and the Bellamys reside in Eaton Place, in the heart of London's Belgravia. Above stairs, Lady Marjorie runs the house and plans her husband's future in the government. Below stairs, Rose and Sarah, the maids, pursue their duties beneath the ever-watchful eye of Mr Hudson, the butler...

Upstairs Downstairs became one of the most-loved and enduring TV shows of all time during the 1970s. A huge hit with British and international audiences, it won countless awards, including seven Emmys, two BAFTAs and a Golden Globe. In 2010, the BBC revived the series, with two sumptuous feature-length episodes set in the same iconic house and with a distinguished cast including Keeley Hawes, Art Malik and Dame Eileen Atkins.

This novelisation is written by John Hawkesworth, who helped create the original series, and read by Jean Marsh, who starred as Rose in both the 1970s series and the BBC's updated revival. A fascinating tale of Edwardian family life, it is sure to delight fans old and new.

    " Simple knock off from the TV show. Enjoyable and light, but hardly important. "

    " A visit back to the 70's!! Loved the show on PBS and enjoyed reading the story all these years later. One thing I noticed, Downton Abbey is a blatent RIP OFF of Upstairs Downstairs!!! I think people who were not around in the 70's don't realize this. "
