I`ve just watched today`s episode; I was a bit disappointed to hear them mention the word value about 6 times in the first couple of minutes, although both cases were really interesting.

The captions and outlines of trees have an orange flame effect background the small white font does not show very well, people with sight defect would prefer a lighter background.

I seem to remember a  comment after a previous series,  that some of the travelling Heir Hunters were fed up with the intrusiveness of being followed by the film  team. Perhaps that is the reason for the change of format.

HANG ON

I have seen this episode..  I remember so much of it....

The chap having two properties and relatives from Scotland...

?????

I will watch it through... but almost convinced it is a repeat..

How can that be so --- in a new series, with a new '''narrator'''' 

The dead person --- eeek  the Deceased surely is a better term.


They say it is a sign of A/oldtimers / De-ja-vu.. SO please someone agree with me.. that they have seen it..

I remember her with the 'tatty hair'   going now..

maybe a similar prog......

OK

 So watched it through and it was --- NOT an exact repeat.. but maybe its because the 'NEW' format is so dull that it just seemed that way..

I think I just saw so many similarities == it proves its lost its spark.

I was unable to watch it last week as I was away for the week, so I was interested when I saw it on today. Initially, I thought I was watching the wrong programme when Michael came up, but I still found it an interesting watch - although I'm not sure which format I prefer. I will have to catch up on last week's episodes.

I watched the first programme of this series. One of the two cases mentioned during the programme was out of date, the death being over thirty years before the day the programme was shown. Otherwise quite interesting.

I am puzzled as to how Andrew Fraser is authorised to go to empty properties and search for any Wills/Papers/bank statements.   Are other competitors allowed to do this?

Andrew is only allowed to enter the property after we have found the heirs and got authorisation. I am afraid there is a bit of artistic license used to distort time to make a bit more of a story.

read the next post for more info on making the programs.
