Masterpiece Classic Downton Abbey Season 5 - 8 p.m. Sundays and 10 p.m Saturdays beginning January 4
Downton Abbey returns for an epic fifth season of intimately interlaced stories centered on an English country estate a deliciously entertaining formula that has made it the highest-rated drama in PBS history.
Viewers can expect all the highs and lows, the heady mix of drama, romance and comedy and plenty of new surprises. Follow plot threads left dangling from last season, including Lady Mary's courtship contest, Lady Edith's trials as a secret single mom, Thomas's scheming against Bates, Robert's battles against modernity, Tom's quest to be true to his ideals, Violet's one-line zingers, and much, much more.
One of the recurring themes of Downton Abbey is change, from the wrenching consequences of the Titanic disaster in Season 1 to a notorious automobile accident at the end of Season 3 - plus World War I, women's rights, and the new morals, inventions, and fashions of the 1920s. Which is where Season 5 kicks off. It's 1924. The United Kingdom has its first Labor Party prime minister. The radio is the latest miracle of the age. And Downton's traditional ways are besieged on all fronts.

The Manners of Downton Abbey A Masterpiece Special - January 4 at 9:40 p.m. (follows Manor of Speaking)
Hovering just off camera on the set of Downton Abbey is the man who watches the actors' every move. The director? No, it's the historical advisor, Alastair Bruce, guaranteeing that the behavior above stairs and below stairs is true to the period of 1900s Britain. A treat for Downton Abbey fans or anyone who loves history, this special goes behind the scenes during the filming of Season 5 to explore the elaborate code of conduct that governed British life.
