Full movie description "Upstairs, Downstairs A Place in the World":It's February 1920 and James Bellamy is still trying to find his way in the world. After writing a letter to the Times on the current lack of support for World War I veterans who are suffering with the high level of unemployment and lack of government programs, he accepts an offer to stand for the Conservative party in a by-election. His father thinks that politics isn't for amateurs and isn't very supportive of James' desires. When Richard does offer him his help, James refuses it. Below stairs, the servants receive a visit from Edward and Daisy who have clearly fallen on hard times. Daisy had a miscarriage and lost their baby and Edward is unemployed. Neither have eaten for some time and Edward is clearly one of those veterans that James Bellamy had written about. Edward is too proud to accept the charity of his friends and his bitterness leads to harsh words with Mr. Hudson. On a subsequent visit, they learn what true friendship means.
Reviews of the Upstairs, Downstairs A Place in the WorldFebruary, 1920, Edward and Daisy fall on hard times, having left Service a couple of years earlier. On a visit to 165, it is apparent that they are struggling to live, and that Daisy has lost her baby... In an attempt to save face, and to keep the truth from the staff, Edward lashes out at Hudson who never wanted them to leave Service in the first place. Hudson feeling both upset by Edward's words - yet also guilty in some way, suggests to Lady Bellamy new Posts for them both, where Daisy and Edward could return to Eaton Place with some form of dignity - a step up; Edward as Chauffeur, and Daisy as Head House Parlour Maid.
James in the meantime is standing for election, and although he does his best, it can not go unnoticed that during war time, the gentry will expect ordinary people to fight alongside wealthy people, but just as soon as the war is over, they are expected to live the lives they had before - no more wealth, prosperity or change...
One of the reasons I cannot understand how ordinary people can be so gullible and risk their lives for their country - only to be forgotten as soon as it's over... (sorry if I offend anybody - but have witnessed this first hand) If and when war comes, ordinary people should let those that live in comfort during peace time fight it out amongst themselves instead of 'using' people who are having to fight battles every day of their lives during peace time merely to 'survive'...
