Coming Home - Celebs With Welsh Roots

Postby FamilyHistoryAddict » Fri Jul 10, 2009 3:43 pm

Wasn't sure where to put this post but opted for Feedback.

While I was on holiday I recorded this series on my Sky Box. Most of the programmes were OK but nothing to get too excited about. They featured Christopher Timothy, Janet Street-Porter, Michael Heseltine, Pam Ferris etc etc.

However today I watched Patrick Mower's programme and that one was really stunning!!!

I won't say too much about it but Patrick got quite emotional and with good cause and he had a couple of Skeleton's In The Cupboard.

Never been much of a fan of Patrick's but I thought more kindly towards him after this programme.

If you ever see it is going to be repeated, make a point of catching it this edition. I saw it on Blighty TV.

Patrick's programme was better than some of those featured on WDYTYA.

WDYTYA - You should consider using Patrick Mower - what a story!!!!!

I enjoyed this series on Blighty recently! I'm guessing it was shown on BBC Wales rather than here in London as part of local broadcasting strand.

I'll have to have a look at that one. It sounds good. I wish they would show the Australian series here. I loved the one with Cathy Freeman the Olympic runner. It was really moving and great social history and I'm sure people over here would be just as interested in it as Australian viewers were.

Yes I agree. I would love to see the Australian series and the American one too.
Maybe BBC2 could show them?

These are WDYTYA DVDs but I think Wilko wants the Coming Home Series which is a different programme altogether.

I'm afraid Coming Home hasn't come to DVD. I'll try and keep an eye out for any repeats on TV - Blighty is a good bet but these things crop up all over the place!

By the way, you can now watch series one of the Australian version on the internet. Try this link: http://www.sbs.com.au/shows/whodoyouthi ... 1/season/1

We're going to cover more about the Australian series in our January issue. We will start covering Coming Home and Heir Hunters in future issues as well.
