PBS stations across the country are looking for speakers as they hold December events to promote the third season of Downton Abbey on MASTERPIECE.

Downton Abbey won last year’s Primetime Emmy® award for “Outstanding Miniseries” and just received another 16 Emmy nominations for its second season. New episodes begin January 6, 2013 and, as this third season opens, the characters are in 1920 and the context has moved from the Edwardian Era to the Interwar years.

Are you able to speak to the costume and fashion issues of this time in British history? Would you be interested in educating an audience about the lifestyles of both the British aristocracy as well as the mainstream population?

If so, please contact gay_mohrbacher@wgbh.org who is coordinating a centralized speakers bureau for PBS stations across the country to access. You may also reach Gay at #617/300-5308.  Please send along your CV, a photo, and indicate specific topic(s) you would enjoy sharing. Please know there is no guarantee that individual PBS stations can do more than provide an honorarium.
