'Secrets from the Workhouse' tv programme
« on: Saturday 15 June 13 16:34 BST (UK) »
On ITV, 9pm, Tuesday 25 June.

Sort of 'Who Do You Think You Are', but the celebrities are looking at one ancestor only, and their workhouse records.

I'll be watching!

Thanks for pointing it out, - it definately sounds interesting! (It's on my birthday though, - so I might have to record it:-)

I'll record it in case I don't have time to watch it that night.  Is it a series, if so I'll have to set series record as we go away a couple or so days later.

There's two episodes, but it doesn't say when the second one is.  Am presuming it would be the following Tuesday at the same time, but no confirmation yet.

Thanks.  I'll set the recorder later when my OH has finished watching the news, then I won't forget.

I am looking forward to it (how sad/crazy are we  ;D). I have linked this programme to here www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,647367.msg4976478.html#msg4976478 - thought Carol and others following that story might connect with the documentary too.
