WDYTYA USA
« on: Tuesday 13 March 18 12:51 GMT (UK) »
In case anyone is interested, there's a new series of the US version of WDYTYA starting next Tuesday (20th) at 9pm on W Channel. The first episode is on Courteney Cox of Friends fame.

I know a lot of people don't like the US versions but I think they produced some really good ones: e.g. Kelsey Grammar (Frasier) and Jim Parsons (Big Bang). It does help if you've actually heard of them!
BRICKWALL - WILLIAM HORWOOD bn c.1779 in or near Berks. N.B. NOT s/o William & Joanna in Waltham St Lawrence.

Oh I would love to see that - do we get W Channel in England? 

I have seen some US episodes before but don't remember what channel they were on.

I have rarely heard of the people on uk WDYTHYA, that doesn't make me enjoy it less. It is the ancestors and research that I am interested in.

It isn't on freeview or freesat as it is a pay channel but is on the likes of Talk Talk, Virgin Media and Sky.

A review of the Courtney Cox ("Friends") episode:

Courteney Cox hoped her forebears hadnít murdered anyone, but found that real life is often more gruesome than Game of Thrones
