I was fascinated and delighted to watch the BBC's TV programme "Who Do You Think You Are?" featuring the search for the family tree of Alisair McGowan last Thursday (October 4th 2007).
His genealogical journey of discovery had so many twists and turns that the poor man was reeling, as his family tree was uncovered and his Anglo-Indian roots were exposed back to 18th century India.
I was glad that The Indiaman Magazine was able to help with some of the research into this episode, and I was also delighted that we received a credit at the end of the programme.
I have been inundated with emails from readers around the world asking me for copies of that episode. I have contacted the TV Company who produced the programme to enquire if this series of WDYTYA? will be released on DVD. They said that they will let me know.
When I hear from them, I will let you know.
