Mr. Carson will look back over his time at Downton Abbey and remember the many characters that filled the home over the years; from the extended family and friends, to VIPs and house staff members. Carson will also recall some of the most significant events that took place in the house, each time showing a rich collection of clips and montages from the series to illustrate the lives, loves and losses from across all six seasons.
To bring Mr. Carson’s stories and the clips vividly to life, the orchestra will play songs from the beautiful soundtrack, which was composed by John Lunn.
