Heir Hunters currently on the History Channels I think about 5 times a day (series 2)

A series 6 for the BBC is under development according to Flame TV's web site the production company.

There are now 15,000 unclaimed estates in England and Wales where people died without making a will and no obvious blood relatives is known to take the booty.

I just watched Heir Hunters and they had a very interesting case about a woman born in 1915 who had been a foundling child. She had tried to trace her natural mother through the Coram Foundation. Her niece was able to see letters sent to her when they were trying to help her.
