Summary

"Who Do You Think You Are?" follows well-known faces as they trace their family histories. During the planning stage for a series, only celebrities with interesting backgrounds make the cut. Chat show supremo Michael Parkinson once famously declared his appearance had been axed because his ancestors were too boring. The first edition focused on broadcaster Bill Oddie, who discovers a wealth of information about past relatives whose existence he was previously unaware of. Series one was BBC Two's highest-rated programme of 2004. It transferred to BBC One for the third series in 2006. David Morrissey narrated the first series. Mark Strong has narrated the show since 2006. The format has been used all around the world, including an American version that has attracted names such as Sarah Jessica Parker and Susan Sarandon.
