I thought the reunions themselves were touching but other than that is seemed very amateurish after the slick performance of Nicky Campbell and Davina McCall on ITV.

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?

Susan Swingler

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.

Finding Your Roots

Has anyone had a chance to watch 'Finding your Roots' on PBS America? You need satellite or cable to get the channel (it's 166 Sky and 243 on Virgin) but it's definitely worth having a look at if you've got it. It's very much routed in American history and uses DNA testing as part of its approach - but it's still family history!
