New BBC documentary series
(posted April 2014)
Are you searching for someone?
Is there someone out there who needs to hear you say ‘thank you’? A guardian angel who changed, or even saved your life? Someone who has no idea how profoundly grateful you still feel? Or is there someone who you’re desperate to apologise to? Someone you often think about, who you wronged, let down, or hurt years ago? Someone who you have no idea how to find?
From the makers of ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ and ‘Long Lost Family’, a heart-warming new series for BBC One will reunite people whose paths once crossed and give them the chance to say ‘sorry’ or ’thank you’ in person.
