SBS will be airing the British family history series “Who Do You Think You Are?” commencing on Sunday, December 2. The series of six episodes explores the family history of a different celebrity each week – sometimes with surprising results!
The Australian version of this series will follow commencing on Sunday, January 13, 2008. The Australian celebrities will include Cathy Freeman, Jack Thompson, Geoffrey Robertson, Kate Ceberano, Ita Buttrose and Dennis Cometti.
When this show was screened in the UK it resulted in a huge increase in people getting involved in genealogy. It will be interesting to see if the same thing happens here!
