A few months ago I was contacted by a WDYTYA researcher, who had found me via RootsChat.  She wouldn't say who she was researching, but I gave her the records I had and she kindly informed me later that they appeared to be correct!  I'm now waiting to see if I am connected to some "celebrity" in the next series.  Trouble is, I shall have to record the whole series, as I don't know who to look out for.

How did you know she was genuine Gillg? Not doubting you, I'm just curious. Must admit I'm suspicious of everyone.  ;) ;D

Carla will be hoping this leads to Alya's failure. However, good old Kirkie's on the case! Coupled with his guilt about what he and Beth have done, perhaps he'll save the day.

Oh I'm such a saddo, will have to get on and do something meaningful!  ;) ;D

The moths eat any natural fibre so if they make any cotton knickers they'd scoff them! The advice Daniel found on't tinternet was good, put the clothes in the freezer.

I love Corrie  :D :D

But don't forget, these are celebrities who mostly just want to know about their roots, not go trawling the internet or through old documents to find the information. As has been mentioned, this is to appeal to the masses, not necessarily to genealogists. Of course there are many of us but not as many as there are of the rest of the population! The programme proved so popular that they changed it to appeal to more viewers. I must admit that if I don't know who the celebrity is or don't particularly like them, I don't watch the programme!

Technical Help / Re: ITV Hub on Fire TV stick

Thanks Dorrie, I did think of putting in a postcode that wasn't mine, had in mind somewhere a bit more local than London.  :D  My curiosity got the better of me so after checking the postcode I found it was the London Dungeon.  ;D Or perhaps the Premier Inn.

Have tried and it works, many thanks.  :)

Technical Help / ITV Hub on Fire TV stick
« on: Saturday 12 May 18 17:26 BST (UK)  »
For some time now I've successfully watched programmes on the ITV Hub via my Fire TV stick. However, there's a particular item I wanted to watch on an episode of This Morning that was broadcast this last week but when I look for This Morning in the search, nothing comes up. I was going to try looking via the Channels heading but it asks for my postcode, I'm not willing to give this unless absolutely necessary. (A personal gripe of mine, I get sick of every organisation in creation trying to gather personal data!) I've never entered my postcode previously and until now hadn't had any problems with it.

Any ideas please anyone?
