Find My Past

Hosted by Chris Hollins, Find My Past invites people to delve back into their ancestry to find out how they are linked to some of our most talked about events in modern history.

The famous events that feature in the series are The Battle of Britain, Mutiny on the Bounty, Jack the Ripper, Dunkirk, D-Day, The Titanic, The Battle of the Somme, The Tay Bridge Disaster, A Victorian Royal Scandal and Emily Davison – the ground breaking suffragette who threw herself under the King's Horse.

Each episode will unearth the kind of emotional stories, shocking details and fascinating facts that only a genealogy series can, and will show how easily anyone can be related to some of history's most famous people and events.
