Digging up Your Roots
Now in its fifth series, the programme relates many inspirational stories and gives advice for those delving into their family history.
While focusing on Scottish genealogy and history it by necessity touches on many events and places worldwide referring to a variety of sources and much of the advice translates well to any genealogical search.
Episode 2 looks at myths and stories that have been passed down through generations and in episode 3 a panel of experts: genealogist Dr Bruce Durie from the University of Strathclyde, former Chairman of the Tay Valley Family History Society, John Irvine, and Senior Archivist at Angus Council Archives, Fiona Scharlau, answers questions posed by a live audience.
The programme is broadcast on Sundays at mid-day and is available on the BBC iPlayer. It can also be downloaded through iTunes where all three of the episodes are still available.
