air date: 7/07/13 7:00 PM
Nineteen generations of Spencers, one of Britain's most eminent aristocratic dynasties, have lived for over 500 years at Althorp -- childhood home to the much beloved Diana, Princess of Wales, whose life is celebrated in an exhibition featuring some of her famous outfits. Her final resting place is a simple island in the middle of the lake marked by a memorial urn. The house has witnessed joys and tragedies and the estate is now in the hands of Diana's brother Charles the 9th Earl Spencer. He gives us a personal tour around this magnificent manor that is still very much a family home. He likes to greet new guests in the library as "nobody is ever ill at ease here" and points out the ancient globe in the corner used for hundreds of years to teach geography that shows California as a squiggle in the Pacific The history of the house is inextricably bound up with the character, the strengths -- and the weaknesses -- of those who have lived here.
