From the BBC comes a dainty six-part documentary series about Europe's "great families" hitting hard times—hard to them, at least. One episode watches France's genteel Marquis de Genay open his 350-year-old château as a tourist attraction; other installments go to England, Spain, Germany, Italy and Liechtenstein. Along the way, The Aristocrats is a charming peep at how the other 1 percent lives.
