Leslie Goddard portrays Margaret Powell, a kitchen maid and cook who worked in several stately English homes in the 1920s. Powell’s best-selling memoir “Below Stairs” was a key inspiration for the television programs “Downton Abbey” and “Upstairs, Downstairs.” In this first-person program, Powell shares stories about the work it took to run a wealthy household in this era. Behind the glamour of these lavish households, a small army of servants toiled around the clock, bound together by hard work and a necessary sense of humor.
