A Few Castles in Spain

on BBC One London

Alan Whicker visits the Spanish Family Alba.
The Albas, one of the world's great families, have accumulated their treasures during nine centuries; within their Palaces and Castles they live in a style almost unknown in the world today. Spanish aristocrats are cloistered, secluded, unapproachable, their way of life still feudal. Today Spain approaches the end of an era, but tonight we are just in time to look within this private world and meet the family of los Duques de Alba.
Their eldest son, Carlos, Duke of Huescar
Their second son, Alfonso, Duke of Aliaga
Their younger children, Jacobo and Fernando
Their baby Cayetano
and the staffs of their various Palaces
