  1. Kim Cattrall already did a tremendous episode of the UK version of WDYTYA (it’s been uploaded to YouTube in several sections). Will they just be re-broadcasting that with new voiceover narration?

  2. With the introduction of the very popular show "Boardwalk Empire" on HBO this year, I was very happy to see that Steve Buscemi is one of the participants – CAN’T WAIT!

  3. Great choices. I’m especially pleased to see 2 African American’s on the list since I find the stories tracing back to ancestors that were slaves particularly moving. Its great to see this show doing so well.

  4. This is great, but I still keep waiting for the show to do genealogy research for folks who don’t have the financial wherewithall to hire professional genealogists, or travel to ancestral homes, like lots of us.

  5. I agree with Bob. If I had tons of $$$ I could have professional genealogists do the research for me….I would be happy to sit there and look at the papers someone else has found for me…Oh yes, and I could hop on planes and travel around the world to look at more papers…..
    I love the show and the concept….but how about regular people with limited means…..
