Elizabeth McGovern hosts this look at American heiresses who, from the 1870s to WWI, wed cash-strapped British aristocrats. First up: the first marriages between the "nouveau riche," who were snubbed by old-money families, and the British aristocracy. Some resulted from love, but others were little more than dollar-for-title deals.

Huh, this is a part of US/UK history that I was not very aware of! It puts Downton Abbey (and Winston Churchill and Princess Di!) in a whole new light!
