Who Do You Think You Are? - The Best Of The Comics is the first ever 'best of' compilation from the acclaimed and much-loved factual BBC genealogy series.
Who Do You Think You Are? follows the journeys of well known personalities as they explore their family trees, uncover their family history and discover fascinating and poignant facts about their ancestors that have been, until now, hidden in the annals of time. This unique compilation features the personal histories of six of Britain's favourite comics - an exceptional collectable and a superb introduction to the diverse tales uncovered by the series.
Alexander Armstrong finds relationships with science and royalty dating back to Charles I and beyond; David Baddiel unpacks the secrets that lie in his grandparents' suitcases on a journey through Kaliningrad and Warsaw; John Bishop uncovers entertaining roots that take him into the world of Minstrels; Alan Carr kicks off with stories of the soccer field before tracking down a missing soldier; Stephen Fry explores his Slovakian roots, discovering a sugar beet connection that helped save his mother's parents from the Nazis; and Vic Reeves lifts a curtain which hides the secret life of his elusive grandfather revealing another family and a new relative.
Always enthralling, often surprising, Who Do You Think You Are? has gone from strength to strength with audiences over six million, its own best-selling magazine, book sales in excess of 400,000, the Who Do You Think You Are? live show at Olympia, and countless viewers inspired to research their own personal histories.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
