The Bafta award winning ‘Long Lost Family’ returns tonight at 9pm on ITV. Now in its fourth series, the programme travels as far as South Africa and Australia to trace and reunite separated families.
Across eight episodes, viewers are taken on a moving journey, from the moment relatives reveal how they lost contact with a family member, to being told their loved one has been traced, to their eventual reunion.
Series four features mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, sisters and brothers searching for loved ones who they are desperate to find. The programme travels around the UK and overseas with the help of Nicky Campbell and Davina McCall, families are guided through the heart-rending reunion process.
Interviewed by ITV, Davina said: “Long Lost Family is unlike anything else I've ever been involved in - it's emotional, it's heart-warming and it's life changing for the people we reunite. It's such a huge honour to be a part of their stories and ultimately to help them find loved ones.”
It looks like being another great series, will you be watching?
The new genealogy comedy series 'Family Tree' starts tomorrow (Tuesday 16 July) on BBC2 at 10pm. Starring Chris O'Dowd and Nina Conti, it follows one man on his search to discover his roots and the unintentionally hilarious consequences of his search.
Genealogy is new territory for comedy so it will be interesting to see how good the series is. Much of the script is improvised which also adds to the unique nature of the programme.
The series has already started in the U.S. and reviews so far have been positive. For those that choose to watch the programme tomorrow, we'd be interested in your views!
