Description

Hosted by Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell, Long Lost Family has been a huge ratings success for ITV1 during the Spring of 2011, winning huge audiences of between 4.5 and 5 million during its 6-part run in April and May 2011. The programme was instantly re-commissioned, and Series 2 is due to be broadcast in Spring 2012. The show helps relatives - some of whom have been searching in vain for many years - to find the family members they are desperately seeking. It explores the background and context of each family's estrangement and reveals the detective work and complex and emotional process of finding each lost relative before they are reunited. It is tear-jerking stuff. This brilliant new book takes the very best emotional stories from the show and expands on them to tell these wonderfully warm and poignant tales in all their heartstring-tugging glory. It also contains a section of hints and tips for how to go about starting a search for a long lost family member. The perfect gift for Mother's Day.show more

I shed some too." -- The Times 20110422 "It made me get the Kleenex out" -- The Sun 20110425 "It is difficult to remain unmoved by tonight's opener" -- The Sunday Times 20110417 "The biggest surprise in Long Lost Family is that it's not been made before" -- Independent 20110422 "Prepare to blub your eyes out" -- Closer 20110422 "Along with The Biggest Loser, ITV1 may at long last have two returnable factual series" -- Broadcast 20110425show more
