Carol Vorderman - talk about the show

I'm in Australia and just saw the episode with Carol Vorderman. I was amazed when I heard that her great-grandfather was a medical officer in the Dutch East-Indies who researched beriberi, because my great-great-grandfather did exactly the same thing!

In 1879 van Leent put forward the theory that it was ...

I do love this programme so it sounds like I'm moaning about it in these posts. Did Carol's photo really match with the doorway she found in North Wales.
