The opening titles for each season show all the participants for that season, each in front of objects or buildings which are relevant to their story. The order of the participants changes from one episode to the next, with the subject of the episode always being the final one in the sequence. See more »
Who Do you Think You Are? is one of the better documentary series's that the BBC have made recently. I watched most episodes.
It is about ten celebrities who trace their ancestors from many years ago. This takes them around the UK and around the world too. We learn quite a lot through watching this and we also get to see different places.
Some of the celebrities taking us on this journey include newsreader Moira Stuart, comedian and ornithologist Bill Oddie, Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson, singer Lesley Garrett and actress Sue Johnston.
This was screened on BBC2 between 9 and 10pm on Tuesdays. I think it would have attracted more viewers if it had been on BBC1.
