SUNDAY, 8.30PM, ABC1

This enjoyable series steeped in 1930s history will not disappoint those in love with period dramas such as Downton Abbey. In this episode war is looming. Despite this, wayward Lady Percy still refuses to leave Germany. The Kennedys (including a young JFK) come to dine at 165 Eaton Place, and household cook Mrs Thackeray's struggle with the anally retentive Mr Pritchard comes to a head. Britain's reluctance to take in Jewish refugees is also put under the spotlight as the characters band together to save Jewish children from the impending Holocaust.
