8pm ROYALTY CLOSE UP: THE PHOTOGRAPHY OF KENT GAVIN - History /Art/Culture - Go Behind-the-Scenes with the Royals’ Favorite Photographer.

Over his long and prolific career, photojournalist Kent Gavin has traveled the world documenting everything from devastated war zones to heartbreaking seal hunts, but he is perhaps best known for his work with the British royal family.

Utilizing an incredible vault of previously unreleased photographs, award-winning filmmaker Don Letts explores the work of photojournalist Kent Gavin. From royal tours abroad to magical moments at Buckingham Palace to rare glimpses of emotion at Westminster Abbey, this prolific photographer has captured it all.


This four-part series takes an in-depth look at the workings of some of Scotland’s most magnificent country estates through the eyes of the current owners, the ghillies, the gardeners and the housekeepers, not forgetting the paying guests who frequent these stunning country estates. 


KINCARDINE - The 70-room Kincardine Castle is home to only two people, Andrew and Nicky Bradford. In a little over a century, the castle and its surrounding 3,000-acre estate have gone from being a trifling extravagance for its fabulously rich owners to presenting a passionate but ongoing struggle to keep it afloat for its present-day occupants.
