A DOCUMENTARY which ventured behind the scenes at Chatsworth House has been put forward for a National Television Award.

The hit series has been nominated in the documentary category along with 16 other well-known programmes including 56UP, Frozen Planet, One Born Every Minute and My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding.

Chatsworth was a three-part series of one-hour documentaries which aired on BBC1 earlier this year.

Crews were granted unprecedented access to the 30,000-acre Peak District estate to film the day-to-day lives of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire as well as the stately home’s 700-strong workforce.

Four programmes will make the shortlist to go on to the awards show, which will be held at London’s O2 Arena next January and shown live on ITV1.

Winners are chosen entirely by viewers.

Voting is open now and closes on October 11.

All voters enter into a prize draw for a chance to win a Red Carpet pass, VIP tickets to the star-studded show and a night in a top London hotel.
