Really Interesting!
16 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

I'm watching the second series of "Who Do you think you are?" and am so interested!

All the personal history of the celebrity is interesting but they (the narrator,Mark Strong) gives you the general history of whatever they are talking about and me being a history lover find these parts really interesting.

It also helps people with their family trees (like me) don't bother with the website they give you its useless!

The person who said it should be on BBC1 was right but now it is!

I hope they carry on after this second series!
