Re: Old Palace School Bombing 80th Anniversary

Re: ITV confirms the line up for the brand new series of DNA Journey

Having watched both series I have to say that I much preferred the BBC series. The ITV series was just about the celebrity, rather than the story, much preferred the BBC programmes as they centred on the individual stories. We have to accept that these programmes are catering for the masses rather t...
