Irish "Who Do You Think You Are" series

Ireland has commenced the broadcast of its own version of celebrity family history television series "Who Do You Think You Are" on Monday eveenings on RTE1, with episodes so far featuring Charlie Bird and singer Dana. The rest of the run will include programmes on Ardal O' Hanlon, Pamela Flood and Linda Martin.

Irish newspaper the Herald has picked up on the success of the series, and on the effects it has had on those in Ireland wishing to research their ancestry. Another recent programme to help with the trend has been "Where Was Your Family During the Famine?".
