Tracing Your Roots is back for a new series

17 Sep

The BBC Radio 4 family history programme Tracing Your Roots is back for a sixth series. Unfortunately it is only a short series of four episodes, but the good news is that it is available as a podcast from the BBC website.

Even better news is that there are currently a total of twelve episodes available to listen to on the BBC iPlayer: the first episode from the new series, all of series four and five and the one-off census episode from earlier this year.

The first episode of the new series was broadcast on Tuesday 13th September 2011 at 4pm and was entitled “What’s in a name?” and looks at the problems surrounding name changes in family history. This is something most family historian will come across at some stage, myself included, and I am looking forward to hearing what they have to say on the subject.

The next episode (entitled Life in Confinement) is scheduled for Tuesday 20th September at 4pm on BBC Radio 4.

    I`ve was prompted by a teaching colleague to listen to you programme regarding a lady tracing her GERMAN father who was aprisoner of war. I have uncovered a very similar story with a reasonably happy ending.It all happened some years ago, but the programme has refreshed my interest.
    Please check it out.
