Who Do You Think You Are - 10th anniversary special

I announced yesterday that the new series of Who Do You Think You Are? will commence on Thursday August 7th at 9pm on BBC1 (see ). However, with this being the 10th series, a one hour anniversary special will be shown the night before on Wednesday 6th August on BBC 1 at 10.35pm. Entitled Who Do You Think You Are: Who Do They Think They Are? 10 Years, 100 Shows, it will celebrate the series to date - here's the blurb from the Radio Times:

The stories of celebrities who have been on a tour of their ancestry, marking the return of Who Do You Think You Are? as the series celebrates its 10th birthday and approaches its 100th episode. Featuring contributions from favourites including Jeremy Paxman, Bruce Forsyth, Alexander Armstrong, Emilia Fox, Alistair McGowan, Boris Johnson, Ainsley Harriot and Natasha Kaplinsky, who uncovered experiences of forebears spanning a cross-section of life from the workhouse to a royal palace, and even a brothel.
