We received the following appeal from Dragonfly TV this week. They are asking interested people from all over the world, who have UK ancestry, to contact them and possibly be featured in their first season. This is the second time that they have made this appeal, so it may be worthwhile to contact them with your story.
We're currently making an exciting new TV series called Guess the Relative (working title). We are searching for people from all over the world, who think they may have British ancestry. It might be that you have a very distant ancestor who was British, or that one of your ancestors migrated to Britain. If you think that your family may have a British connection they would like to hear from you.
Successful participants will receive an expenses paid trip to the UK to meet British relatives that they never knew existed.
We are particularly keen to speak to people who have interest in traditional national pursuits, for example music, dance, cooking, hunting, sports, arts or costume. We hope to use the programme as a way to promote other nationalities rich cultural heritage to their UK viewers. We are also looking to speak to people with interesting hobbies, jobs or backgrounds.
It would be great if you could pass on the information to your family, friends, colleagues and anyone whom you think might be eligible.
Anyone who would like to take part can go to: www.guesstherelative.tv to apply online.
Many thanks and kind regards",
