What I forgot to say is that the quality, content and standard of articles remains high. I have never been disappointed in an issue yet. This magazine is very much the leader in terms of something for everyone. Also it's great to see the forum so busy - I'm loving it!

I didn't mind about getting my copy early. I can control myself and not read the stuff pertaining to the programme! [;)]

Cheers, FHA

I'm a subscriber in Norfolk and I got my copy on tuesday as well!
I managed to restrain myself from looking at the Jerry Springer article until after the programme.
Excellent episode. Very moving.

I'm in Kent and got my copy yesterday. Luckily as I was going out straight from work I'd set DVD to watch episode when I got home. I couldn't wait until the showing today on BBC 2 as sometimes its discussed at work and that spoils it too - I can't always stick my fingers in my ears! I watched the episode and then discovered postman had been and so was reading my copy at quarter past midnight - still got lots left to read though.

If the day had been different, I would have opened it and started reading, hopefully next month it will arrive after the Wednesday.

Anyway great mag and an enjoyable accompliment to the series. Thank you all concerned.

My copy arrived this morning, I have only just subscribed so had no real idea when it would arrive. I took advantage of the 3 for £1 offer.

Find it very difficult to pick them up here at times so went for the sub.

I haven't seen it for sale where I am.

It sounds like you all think it's worth buying - but what about when the series isn't airing. What's the content like then? Not sure if I want to subscribe if it turns into just another mag.

It certainly wasn't just Nottinghamshire, I'm in Caithness and I got it on Tuesday and if something can be late arriving it will be here [&:] . As someone who often reads the end of a book a few pages in I have to admit I read the issue immediately. It didn't spoil my enjoyment of the programme at all, in fact I watched the repeat tonight as well and enjoyed it as much as last night. Absolutely brilliant series as usual.

Im a subscriber living in Hampshire. I got mine on Tuesday too but it didn't spoil the show for me. My wife got to my mag first and I only got it back last night.

In response to Baggybooks, the mag does have WDYTYA? content when the series isn't on air on the BBC (though it's repeated on UKTV during the BBC downtimes) - interviews with past subjects of the series etc - but it's also probably the best and most accessible genealogy magazine on the market so worth giving it a go!
