Spoilers - Monday's Daily Mail - however I'm still looking forward to it. Why do the nationals do it? I turned the page and couldn't avoid it. However I'm still looking forward to the episode and hopefully they haven't revealed everything.

Very good tonight with Bruce Forsyth, interesting about his great grandfather.

Very nice at th end when he visited his great grandfather's grave and going to get a headstone done for him

A great episode to begin the new series and we could see throughout that he had a genuine interest in following up the story through all its twists and turns. I have a similar story concerning one family member, who according to family lore, was supposed to have died and I have since found him living away from the family home so I found this story really intriguing. Great stuff to watch and be inspired by as I haven't yet reached the conclusion of my story as Bruce did.

Great start to a great programme. Hope the rest of the series is as good, as I was a little dissapointed with the last series.

I'm not a great fan of Bruce Forsyth and was half-expecting him to be cracking corny, cheesy jokes every two minutes. However, I thought he came across as charming and courteous to absolutely everyone he met and had a genuine interest in his great-grandfather's story which I thought was fascinating. I really enjoyed this episode and I'm hoping it's a sign of things to come for the rest of the series.

A great episode and start to the new series. If the rest are like this we are in for a great summer. The spoilers didn't spoil. When he returned to New York in 1903 I quite expected to hear that he had started another family - I was getting too engrossed in it! As it was revealed that a headstone would be commissioned I thought a wonderful outcome to a wonderful episode. Looking forward to next Monday.
