Next Season of the UK Version of “Who Do You Think You Are ” Announcement

Who Do You Think You Are has become one of the most beloved shows the BBC has created in recent years. It is a show all about genealogy, history, and getting a look in on celebrities’ lives.

The new season will include appearances and studies of the ancestry of Harry Potter himself Daniel Radcliffe, Naomie Harris, Kate Winslet, Jack and Michael Whitehall, Mark Wright, Sharon Osbourne, Paul Merton, and Katherine Ryan.

Unfortunately, these shows will only be broadcast in the United Kingdom, not in North America or elsewhere.

Since we cannot watch this program in North America, why tease us with the lineup?

Broadcast only in Great Britain, not the U.S.? No fair!

    That announcement is for the UK version of the show. Actually, the television program “Who Do You Think You Are” is broadcast in the USA as well as in a number of other countries. Each country receives its own version, featuring public figures that are well-known in that country.

    For instance, the above article about the United Kingdom’s version features Daniel Radcliffe, Naomie Harris, Kate Winslet, Jack and Michael Whitehall, Mark Wright, Sharon Osbourne, Paul Merton, and Katherine Ryan. Some of those people are well-known in the U.S. but others are not. In contrast, the USA Version of “Who Do You Think You Are” features the ancestors of people well-known in the USA but perhaps are not as well known in other countries.

    I like to publish articles about upcoming programs and events in ALL countries that have a significant number of readers of this newsletter. That is why you often will see articles here about television programs, genealogy conferences, legal issues, and other items of interest to genealogists in many different countries. Most of them will be about genealogy news in English-speaking countries but there may be an occasional exception.

I keep checking the schedule to see when this show will be starting again. I think it’s one of the most interesting shows on TV and goes into history I knew little or nothing about.

Thanks for this info. FYI I live in the USA and watch there UK and Aussie versions of this show on YouTube. You have a to wait until the season is over, but it’s an easy and free way to watch.

    I assume that none of your tv companies is prepared to buy it. The BBC makes a lot of money sellings its material around the world.
    Jim Bass refers to watching it on YouTube but I would suspect that the multiple posts of the same episodes suggests possible breach of copyright
