My Family at War
Originally broadcast as part of BBC One's Remembrance Day special programming in November 2008, My Family at War is sort of a twist on Who Do You Think You Are?--celebrities and television presenters investigate the roles their ancestors played in the First World War.

In this episode, historian Dan Snow and actress Natalie Cassidy set off down very different paths to try and discover the truth behind their families' roles in the Great War.
