Documentary following one of the country's most extraordinary aristocratic families and the people who work for them.
As winter approaches, the estate is being transformed. In the house, renovations commence on the grand staircase. It's taken a year of planning... but no one's thought to consult Lord Bath. On the grounds, management want to launch a brand new winter festival, but not all the staff are completely convinced by the idea. Meanwhile, Ceawlin and Emma become first-time parents, helped by maternity nurse Gilly. Their baby will one day inherit the £190 million estate. And a surprise business offer from China leads to a formal banquet in the green library. But Ceawlin finds himself drinking more than he bargained for when the traditional Chinese toasts begin.
Lord Bath has handed control of Longleat to his son, Ceawlin. But running a £190 million aristocratic estate brings unique challenges. In the attic, Ceawlin finds memorabilia his grandfather collected - including an original watercolour by Adolf Hitler. In the safari park, a vast new animal house is being built for an ageing elephant, Anne. But her keepers are beginning to worry she is too frail to make the half-mile walk from where she is living now. And at the peak of summer, with the estate full of visitors, disaster strikes on the miniature train, with an incident that makes television news headlines. Meanwhile, Ceawlin's wife Emma is pregnant with the future heir to Longleat. But she finds herself missing friends and family from her old life in London, and she wants to find a role for herself on the estate.
