The popular BBC genealogy show "Who Do You Think You Are?" has won lots of praise, but recently it has received a few brickbats as well. It seems the shows producers faked at least one scene that starred Carol Vorderman. Filmmakers allegedly persuaded people to lie as they concocted scenes for the show.
In the program, cameras followed Vorderman through north Wales and traced the scene of a photograph. Vorderman wanted to know where a photo of her great-grandfather was taken and was shown asking passers-by in Prestatyn for help. Finally, shop assistant Dawn Farrell identified it as Bodnant Gardens in the Conwy Valley.
Dawn revealed, "A man told me Carol was going to come into the shop with a photo and ask me about it. He said, 'She is going to show you a photo - could you tell her it is Bodnant?'"
