Excellent documentary series from the BBC
23 February 2005 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

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.

Very enjoyable.
