I enjoyed the program!
It debunked some family legends; as well as making surprising connections for others.

Re: The Paradise ... ok, so is the world of early-20th-century department stores so fascinating that we need two series about it? LOL
I'll watch, though, and hope that it's better than Mr Selfridge (which I did not like). I'm hoping that the combination of Bill Gallagher (who created Lark Rise to Candleford, which I did love) and Émile Zola will be a winner.

I didn't get past episode 1 of Mr Selfridge, mostly because Piven was just so unwatchable in that role. I watched the first 5-10 minutes of The Paradise before switching back to Battle of the Blades, enough to tell me that I'll probably like it. Looking forward to catching up with it tonight.
I liked it a lot. Reminded me a of Mr Selfridge too.
If you read the Daily Mail and don't want to be spoiled for Downton Abbey's US broadcasts, well, don't read the Daily Mail. Spoilers galore in headlines
