My Mission - Who Do You Think You Are?

I don't know why, but we only recently discovered the Bafta award-winning BBC show "WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?", which takes viewers on personal journeys into the pasts of popular celebrities from politics to movies and music.

The long-running series uses genealogy to unlock the major themes in history including the Industrial Revolution, Immigration, the First and Second World Wars, the abolition of slavery, and the Holocaust.

In each episode they reveal the "real person" behind the celebrity, as they come to understand who they truly are, the lives their ancestors lived, and their identity. Each episode reveals the surprising, extraordinary, and often moving stories of our ancestors, which is likely to inspire others to trace their family trees.

Even if you don't know the celebrity, each episode is worth watching because you learn so much about the past and the inhumanity in our society over centuries! You should subscribe to the channel and watch as many episodes as possible. Trust me it is better than any movie or TV series. It is the reality and why we are who we are today and why we are where we are today.

Here are just two examples. Traveling back in time and history is eye-opening and makes us appreciate today even more. You can also follow them on Twitter!
