Desperate ITV prog - Ant & Dec

There is an ITV press announcement on itv.com dated 2nd Oct 2019 about Ant & Dec’s DNA “journey” - gets round copyright issues, I suppose! They are going back up the Y and mitochondrial direct lines, but happen to get help from genealogists along the way. :lol:

Christopher Ecclestone

It has been reported (Daily Mail) that he was going to be in the series but after researchers found he was from a working-class background he was dropped by the BBC. Deja-vu per Michael Parkinson, we wouldn't like to think that the elitist, we don't all want stories linking people to royalty.

Whitehall episode

I must say, I found this episode very irritating. Not only was the son flippant but often rude despite the amount of research carried out for him and his father. My impression was that he misunderstood or couldn't relate to the historical content. The Chartist movement was a very necessary part of our ability to vote democraticaly today. The solicitor ancestor was actually just doing his job ! You can't be a solicitor and clerk ...
