The Gene Detectives


Reunited with long lost relatives but you've got to spot them first!

Gene Detectives is a series that reunites people with relatives who they have either never met before or who have been missing from their lives. However, there is a twist. At the beginning of the show the resident genealogist has narrowed the possible relatives down to three – but only one of them is the real relative…..we only find out which one is the real relative in an emotional reunion when their identity is finally worked out. During a series of tests, can the audience at home, the person looking for the relative and also our presenter work out which one of the three possible relatives really is the real relative?
