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: http://www.abc.net.au/local/sites/conversations/. There are so many lessons for family historians in this story - not least of which is not to believe everything (anything?) your parents tell you. If Susan had not researched so thoroughly her immediate family, the next generation would have had little or no chance of unravelling the web of intrigue and deceit. (Apologies if you already know about this, I think Susan's book was published some time ago, and Richard's conversation with her was recorded last year.)
Cheers, Sylvia
