Full movie description "Upstairs, Downstairs A Patriotic Offering":

It's October 1914 and the war is not going well. The Germans are smashing through Belgium and the allies are in retreat. Hazel Bellamy is on a committee with Lady Prudence Fairfax to find temporary homes for the 5000 or more Belgian refugees that have come to Britain. Feeling an obligation to set an example, Hazel agrees to take in a family and expecting an aristocratic family of 3, receives an extended family of 5 peasant farmers who speak no English. They take residence in the servants' quarters but with the language barrier, it all proves to be a bit much for both sides. The servants find the refugees odd in their tastes and their refusal to take a bath in particular offends them. Rescue of a sort comes from Georgina who returns from a weekend away and having been schooled in Switzerland, is a fluent French speaker.

Reviews of the Upstairs, Downstairs A Patriotic Offering

September, 1914, This was the first episode of the fourth season of 'Upstairs, Downstairs'. The entire thirteen episodes were dedicated to the war years: 1914 - 1918. For this reason, this was not my favourite set, but it has to be said that it is an outstanding part of the whole five seasons, and is well respected and highly praised for this reason by many. I personally don't like war documented TV dramas.

Hazel Bellamy is pressured by Lady Prudence and Lady Birkhamstead in particular (who is aptly referred to in a later episode by Daisy as 'an old trout'!) to take in a family of Belgian Refugees. What they don't know is that they are peasants, and the Bellamys are expecting a family of wealthy foreigners. Chaos ensues when, unable to speak English, the foreign family appear to behave rudely and ungrateful to the staff for their sanctuary. Georgina comes to the rescue, when able to speak French, she is able to make all understand their sad and tragic story.

The Refugees and their plight prompts Edward to 'join up', to the displeasure of Hudson, Daisy and the Bellamys, who all wish to protect him and keep him safe. But as Edward says; 'people can't be allowed to do what they're doing in Belgium and to get away with it can they Mr. Hudson?'
