I always smile when seeing the line-up of personalities to be featured in Who Do You Think You Are? which returns to BBC in June. They mostly comprise people previously unknown to me, showing how out of touch I am with British popular culture. It also shows how, if you take a tortuous enough route into anyone’s ancestry, you’ll find interesting stories.
This year’s “star-studded line-up” is Andrew Lloyd Webber, Claire Foy, Emily Atack, Bear Grylls, Chris Ramsey, Kevin Clifton, Dev Griffin, Chris & Xand van Tulleken and Lesley Manville.
Sadly, we’re unlikely to see these on Canadian TV with CBC prefering British cooking show reruns.

Like you, I rarely know “the stars” whose FH are told. Only know the first two.
On the other hand, some of the subjects of the US version left me scratching my head too. Cheers, BT
Having a BBC PVR, I will look for some of them…. those that I know at least. And.Lloyd Weber of course. I wonder if this will have been filmed before the recent death of his son, far too young.
