For thousands of people across Britain, there’s someone missing from their lives. Long Lost Family aims to reunite relatives after years of separation. Presented by Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell, the series offers a last chance for people who are desperate to find long lost relatives. The searches in this series uncover family secrets and take us all over the world, finding people that no one else has been able to trace and finally answering the questions that have haunted entire lives. The series helps a handful of people, some of whom have been searching in vain for many years, find the family members they are desperately seeking. We are given the unique opportunity to follow the journey of relatives that have spent their lives apart from the very people that should have been nearest and dearest to them – their fathers, mothers, daughters, sons, siblings and even twin sisters. With the help and support of Davina and Nicky, each relative is guided and supported through the process of tracing the member of their family they have been desperately seeking, in some cases for most of their lives. Long Lost Family reveals the background to each case, the social context and reasons why these estrangements occurred, from the single teenage mums who felt unable to keep their babies to the fathers who left and the twin sisters who were separated at birth. The series will afford viewers a revealing insight into the process involved in tracing long lost family members, from many different backgrounds and generations, and show that the searches often take unpredictable turns, from leads which take you to countries far overseas, to discovering that a relative lost for a lifetime has been living only a few miles away all those years.
