Australian Series WDYTYA

The latest Australian series of WDYTYA started last night with Noni Hazlehurst as the subject.

Both her parents were English and had met when young, 19, and on the stage. Turned out that her maternal grandfather and great grandfather were also performers, with gt grandfather Patrick Carmody being better known as "Little Bob" in the Flying Hanlons trapeze act. Fascinating story.

A House Through Time

This 4 part series is coming to an end. Fascinating story about one house in Liverpool and the people who lived there. Told through census, directories etc.

It charts the decline of the area from upper middle class house to working class lodgings and perhaps its more recent revival.

Well worth a watch for anybody interested in genealogy or social history.

Like any programme of this nature, and ...

WDYTYA - Australian 2014 series

We have already had 3 episodes of this year's Australian WDYTYA series. The first, featuring Andrew Denton, was excellent - he carried through his professionalism as a presenter and interviewer, into his role as the subject of the investigation. He has an interesting mixed Catholic and Jewish history with his Jewish ancestor leaving Poland for London in the 1880s. Other descendents were sent to the death camp at Treblinka in WWII.
Last week's episode was ...

WDYTYA 2014?

Last year the TV series of WDYTYA started in July.

Have I missed something or am I correct in thinking there has been no mention of a series this year?

Not really a genealogy program, but Richard Fidler has 'Conversations" every weekday morning at 11am for an hour - that's Sydney, Aus time :) Today I listened to his conversation with Susan Swingler:
Susan Swingler's story of her father Leonard Jolley, and his wife Elizabeth Jolley, and the complex web of deceit they perpetrated.
You can, I hope, find it here: There are so many lessons ...
