It’s no good putting up your emotional heat shields against this programme. It will blow them away with its heart-wrenching tales of parents and children separated for decades, full of regret and pain, but brought together again for the cameras. “Answering the questions that have haunted entire lives,” is how the voiceover puts it.
Jonathan, now 26, who was given up for adoption as a baby and has searched for his mother for years, puts it differently: “I just want to know what was, what could have been, what can be.”
He lives in Arizona; his mother lives in Somerset and has spent a decade trying to trace him, too. When they meet, drop the heat shields and reach for the tissues.
The story of a soldier who discovered the truth about his birth father when he was 15 and has been searching for him ever since. Also featured is a woman trying to trace the son she gave up for adoption 26 years ago. Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell present.
