new 3 part BBC show: Inside Claridges

Just saw an advertisement for a new programme starting 2100 UK time on Monday dec3rd, Inside Claridges. As I do love these kind of shows I'll be watching, especially because its in London. I havent yet had a chance to visit the hotel so looking forward to it. From the website:

"Episode 1

Episode 1 of 3

DURATION: 1 HOUR

Claridge's, in the heart of London's Mayfair is a five star luxury hotel, favoured by royalty and celebrities. For the first time in its long history, this famously discreet institution has opened its doors to documentary cameras. Director Jane Treays has spent a year behind the scenes, upstairs and downstairs, following staff and their guests, some of whom are prepared to pay the price of a small family car for one night's stay.

We're with the chambermaids and housekeepers as they spend days transforming the entire third floor into a palace for foreign royalty who could cancel at a moment's notice. We observe the annual two week stay of the Melchors from California who have been coming for over 40 years, re-kindling their relationship with personal butler Michael Lynch; and we follow the energetic general manager Thomas Kochs as he travels to New York to drum up new business from the top US travel agents."

I've seen that trailer, too. I will tune in tomorrow night, if I don't fall asleep before :)

Thanks! It's probably the only way that I'll get inside this London hotel, so I definitely want to watch this.

How does OrangeTigger in the Netherlands always know about these programmes?

Because I enjoy BBC1, 2, 3&4 more then most of the dutch channels? I love Horrible Histories, Sherlock, QI, DrWho, Russell Howards Good News, Snog Marry Avoid, Child of our time, Don't tell the bride etc etc :) And fly on the wall series like this

And Glyn for me this will probably also be the only way of seeing the hotl

I hope they get to the 3rd part. The series on John Lewis was very good but only had 2 episodes. The third wasn't shown, at least I didn't see it and I was looking for it!

I can't imagine spending 16 nights and only leaving the hotel twice!! But then, can't imagine spending that much on one night's stay, either.
