Hosted by Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell, Long Lost Family has been a huge ratings success for ITV1 during the Spring of 2011, winning huge audiences of between 4.5 and 5 million during its 6-part run in April and May 2011. The programme was instantly re-commissioned, and Series 2 is due to be broadcast in Spring 2012. The show helps relatives - some of whom have been searching in vain for many years - to find the family members they are desperately seeking. It explores the background and context of each family's estrangement and reveals the detective work and complex and emotional process of finding each lost relative before they are reunited. It is tear-jerking stuff. This brilliant new book takes the very best emotional stories from the show and expands on them to tell these wonderfully warm and poignant tales in all their heartstring-tugging glory. It also contains a section of hints and tips for how to go about starting a search for a long lost family member. The perfect gift for Mother's Day.
