Who Do You Think You Are? Stephen Fry #austria-czech

The genealogy programme entitled "Who Do You Think You Are?" on BBC TV
has proved immensely popular; well-known entertainers, actors, politicians
and personalities explore their roots. The second series started two weeks
ago with one of our best-known hardened political interviewers reduced to
tears, when he discovers the details of the life of his great-grandmother.

On Jan 25 2006 at 9.00 pm on BBC 2, all our members in the UK are in for
a big surprise - you can see actor Stephen FRY explore his roots [Vienna
and Surany {Slovakia}], with our Austria-Czech Sigger, Vladimir Bohinc. I
know it will also be very emotional.

The trailer tells us that on Stephen's maternal side, he finds far worse
[than on his father's side] - as not for the first time in the series the
subject stumbles on everyday, middle-class lives that ended in concentration
camps ..... "

I can reveal that my part was minimal - I did a bit of the background work
in Vienna - to solve the puzzle! But I have not seen the programme either.
