External Link: IMDBFor thousands of people across Britain, there’s someone missing from their lives. From the makers of the hit family history series Who Do You Think You Are, Long Lost Family is a brand new series for ITV1 which aims to reunite relatives after years of separation. Presented by Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell, the series offers a last chance for people who are desperate to find long lost relatives. Our searches have uncovered family secrets and taken us all over the world, finding people that no one else has been able to trace and finally answering the questions that have haunted entire lives. The series helps a handful of people, some of whom have been searching in vain for many years, find the family members they are desperately seeking. It explores the background and context of each family’s estrangement and tracks the detective work and often complex and emotional process of finding each lost relative before they are reunited. We are given the unique opportunity to follow the journey of relatives that have spent their lives apart from the very people that should have been nearest and dearest to them – their fathers, mothers, daughters, sons and siblings – even twin sisters in one case.
