Synopsis:
This series is a rare opportunity to explore five of Britain's finest stately homes. This is not just about some of the world's best-loved buildings, spectacular as they are; it is about the treasures within which tell a human story. In this programme Selina Scott explores Burghley House, Lincolnshire. This fabulous house was built by William Cecil, Lord High Treasurer to Elizabeth I, starting in 1555. It took 32 years. 450 years later, Burghley's state rooms are filled with treasures including one of the finest collection of 17th century Italian masterpieces, an exceptional display of Oriental and European ceramics, and fine furniture - all gathered by the Cecils down the centuries.
And it remains a family home, run by the direct descendants of the man who set out to impress Queen Elizabeth with his house in the country.
