Are you a fan of the hit MASTERPIECE drama Downton Abbey? Do you secretly wish you were a member of the Crawley family?
Hosted by the Emmy® Award-winning Ernie Manouse, Manor of Speaking is a local half-hour live program with a studio audience and a rotating cast of local celebrity super fans and cultural experts. Immediately following each NEW episode of Downton Abbey, local viewers continue the Downton conversation by discussing what has just transpired on the episode and what is likely to happen next. From 20th century English fashion, history and etiquette to British cuisine and entertainment, Manor of Speaking explores it all.
Viewers are invited to interact with the live show from home by engaging with us via phone, Twitter and Facebook. We use this feedback with the studio audience and guests throughout the program.
Produced by HoustonPBS, Manor of Speaking airs locally on KUHT Channel 8 and is taped at the Melcher Center for Public Broadcasting on the University of Houston Main Campus.
Stay tuned - you can be a part of the live audience when Manor of Speaking returns on Jan. 2014!
(We will make tickets available from this webpage in late 2013.)
