The opening titles for each season show all the participants for that season, each in front of objects or buildings which are relevant to their story. The order of the participants changes from one episode to the next, with the subject of the episode always being the final one in the sequence. See more »
I cannot praise this show enough. It is a rare treat to see a celebrity do a piece without ego, but this show is heartfelt, funny, and moving in equal measures.
Some of the celebrity's are shocked by the revelations in their past. Stephen Fry finds himself in Aushwitz, Natasha Kaplinsky finds a Jewish massacre in Belarus, and Barbara Windsors family went through debtor jail.
Alistair Mcgowan finds himself in India, and John Hurt doesn't find himself in Ireland. And Nigella Lawson, Jeremy Clarkson, and Jane Horrocks find themselves related to Industrialists.
Fantastic and throughly engrossing series. 10/10.
