Long Lost Family
By Humphrey Price
Hosted by Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell, Long Lost Family has been an enormous 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 April 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.
Let Me Finish
By Udo Grashoff
Suicide has been part of human life since the dawn of time, but has never been so widely and openly discussed as it is today. With the ongoing debate about the rights of the terminally ill to end their own lives, the phenomenon of Internet sites dedicated to advice on how to end your life, and the craze for mass suicides among the Japanese, suicide is rarely out of the news in the 21st century.Udo Grashoff has discovered 45 suicide notes that help us to better understand why despairing people commit the ultimate taboo. In this fascinating collection those reasons are remarkably universal, from unrequited love, to loss of a spouse, to simple frustration with a domestic situation. Despite the universality of its subject matter, this book is unique.
