This is the story of three very different, but hugely successful families, the Sackville Wests, the Astors and the Rothschilds.  The Sackville Wests have been part of the establishment since the Conqueror and the other two families are wealthy immigrants who came to England in the 19th century.  The talk traces the history of the families, discusses their contribution to life in England and celebrates the splendid gardens that they created.
