Join us Tuesday, January 29th at 8pm C.T. for this two-hour special.  John Lunn, the creator of the music for the popular Downton Abbey television series, talks about his life and work, composing for the show, and introduces some of his favorite music from the period. 

Downton Abbey is currently airing on PBS. Our sister-station, WKYU-PBS, will begin Season Three this Friday at 8pm C.T., (with repeats on Saturday at 10pm. and Sunday at 4pm.).

A Lexington native who played a maid in the opening season three episode of the PBS series says working with Shirley MacLaine was an overwhelming experience.

Lucille Sharp said she was vaguely aware of the series about life in an English manor when she was called to audition. Soon after she was cast, she found out she had gotten the role as maid to MacLaine's character. Sharp called MacLaine outgoing, confident and beautiful.

The 22-year-old Sharp, who now lives in London, had about five minutes of screen time in Sunday's opening episode and her character does not return for the season.

Sharp attended the School for Creative and Performing Arts in Lexington.
