Upstairs Downstairs returns for second series

Period drama, Upstairs Downstairs, is making a return to our screens for a second series.

The show was originally broadcast on ITV in the 1970s but was brought back for a one-off special in 2011 by the BBC, with a largely new cast.

Only two of the original characters are still there - Rose, played by Jean Marsh, and the house itself, 165 Eaton Place.

David Sillito reports.
