With excitement growing about this year's new series of Who Do You Think You Are?, there's a chance to catch an episode from the vaults this week on digital channel Watch. In this instalment, Patsy Kensit – most recently of Holby City and Strictly Come Dancing fame – sets discover whether her fears about a family tree full of criminality hold true. Don't forget that you can read more about her story and watch special bonus footage in our online episode guide.
Also this week  History Cold Case
Thursday 7 July, 9pm BBC Two
A construction team working in York in 2008 uncovered 113 skeletons just outside the city's walls. How these bodies came to end up in the mass grave, and a rare genetic peculiarity shared by two of the men, may provide the Cold Case researchers with new perspectives on the English Civil War.
Restoration Home
Tuesday 12 July, 8pm BBC Two
A rusting pumping station in Sussex may not initially sound the most promising site for this series exploring historic restoration projects. However, as its owners soon discover, the industrial-sized bunker played a vital role during the Great Depression of the 1930s.
