Downton Abbey Series 4 Preview at WTCI TV 45 In Chattanooga

Our public TV station WTCI held a special preview of the first hour of the series/season 4 premiere. This was a free event and there was a great crowd that gathered in the studio to watch the show on a big screen. There was champagne punch and assorted sweets. Laura and I had a fantastic time and we think the upcoming series/season is going to be terrific. We thank WTCI for their hospitality.
