It’s bittersweet watching Downton Abbey, knowing that this will be the last series. The writing and acting has been consistently first class and we’ve been fortunate to receive support from several members of the Downton team.

Julian Fellowes

Julian Fellowes, the creator of Downton Abbey, is a supporter and friend of Living Paintings. He has kindly recorded for our Touch to See books The History Of The Teddy Bear and Lights, Camera, Action!

Whilst he was in the studio we interviewed Julian about the making of Downton Abbey. Listen here for some fascinating insights:

Hugh Bonneville, Downton’s Earl of Grantham, did a superb reading of the audio description for our Touch to See version of  Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers. Perfect for bedtime reading.

Jim Cater in BBC studio

Another great supporter is Jim Carter (Carson the butler). Jim has lent his voice to a number of titles such as Friendship, Animals in Art and The History Of The Teddy Bear and also fronted our Radio 4 Appeal.
