Return of Who Do You Think You Are to BBC1

Who Do You Think You Are? returned tonight to BBC1 in Britain at 9.00pm. It clashed with '24' on Sky1, and so I didn't think I would get a chance to view this until tomorrow, but fortunately I was able to watch it on BBC1 Northern Ireland, which is showing the series at 10.35pm - top tip if there is something else on you may wish to see! The show is also on BBC2 Tuesdays at 7.00pm, and repeated on the BBC iPlayer at www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer.

A good strong opener - if anyone asks why you obsess so much about pulling your family history together, ask them if they ever saw the WDYTYA with Rory Bremner, and if they saw how much effort Rory's mum had put into preserving their history before her death - and how much it meant to him.

I'll post the overnights when I get them...

UPDATE: The programme came second in the viewing for that slot, at 6.3 million viewers, or 23.1% share. On ITV, this was beaten by "Whitechapel", with 8.1 million viewers, or 29.7% of the share.
