Who Do You Think You Are? Live are delighted to be working with Scottish Memories, History Scotland and the Grand Central Hotel to offer one lucky reader an amazing weekend in Glasgow, 29-31 August, 2014, worth £500!

From one live event to another, we took part at Bannockburn Live this weekend in the 700th anniversary commemorations of the infamous battle with re-enactments, music, food and drink. 

The eleventh series of Who Do You Think You Are? Live will be hitting our screens from July 26th, starting with an extra special programme celebrating the 100th episode. The new series promises to continue to deliver BBC One audiences the laughter, tears, surprising revelations and shocking discoveries along the way.

 

 
 
 
 

We're happy to announce the 2015 show will take place at Birmingham's NEC, from Thursday 16 April to Saturday 18 April. The new venue offers excellent facilities and transport links allowing people from even further afield to visit the live event.

Nicky Campbell

Winner of six Sony Gold Radio Awards, presenter of BBC1 consumer show 'Watchdog' for 9 years and currently presenter of ITV's 'Long Lost Family' with Davina McCall, Nicky Campbell is more than qualified to come to the show and share his views on the joys and pitfalls of researching your family history. Subject of a 2007 episode of Who Do You Think You Are?, Nicky looked into the history of his adoptive family.

 

 

 

One of our regular exhibitors to the show, Susie Douglas from Borders Ancestry, has spent time researching her own ancestral line.  She encountered a fascinating story of her great uncle and his tremendous work, of which the impact is still felt today.
