    Re: Researching family history

    I bookmarked some of the pages that I had found, and I was thinking of putting the links on emails to relatives, but then I realised that they would have to join up themselves in order to see them. ...

    Yes, but it was revived in the late 1990s as well - Michael Parkinson presented and was succeeded by Michael Aspel (the only programme apart from Give us a Clue that both Michaels have presented);...

    No, they are separate websites and I had to pay for both of them individually - I believe that it is a one off payment as I didn't see any mention of anything like weekly or monthly payments. There...

    Re: Antiques and collectibles

    Actually, I know that Going for a Song was an antiques game show - I meant that it sounded as if it was something to do with music, hence the word "song".

    Re: Antiques and collectibles
