Guess The Relative Show Taking Applications

Does your family have British Roots? A British TV company is making an exciting new TV show featuring British families and their long lost relatives. Dragonfly TV is currently looking for families from outside the UK who would like to travel to Great Britain to discover long lost relatives they never knew existed. They'll get to experience British life, stay in a magnificent Countryside home and meet new members of their family along the way. If you think you may have British ancestors and would like to learn more about your family history visit Guess the Relative TV or call +44 207 033 2319.

They are currently making an exciting new TV series called Guess the Relative (working title) and it's a fun and entertaining show all about family history and our distant living relatives.

In it, people from around the world will get the chance to travel to Britain to discover living British relatives, who they never even knew existed. Here is their outline:

Guess the Relative is a new primetime program for Channel 4 Television - a major UK broadcaster. In each episode of the program, one British family will meet three mystery guests who have come to visit from all over the world. The family is told that one of the three is in fact a distant relative, and the other two are not. The family and their guests will all live together for one week, and take part in a number of entertaining tasks during which they must try and deduce which of the three is their genuine relative.

At the end of each episode, the real relative is announced and their ancestral connection revealed. If the family has guessed correctly, they may win a prize to share with their new relation.

It is a witty and irreverent primetime program, but behind the entertaining nature of the show, it playfully raises questions of family identity, shared values, unknown ancestry and genealogy that are pertinent for us all.

They are currently looking for people from the USA who think they may have a distant ancestor from the UK. Their ancestor might be several generations back and come from England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland - but if they have any link to the UK whatsoever, we want to hear about it!

PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately due to the large number of applications they will be unable to reply to all applicants individually. You will only hear from them if you have been short listed to take part.

To be a contestant on "Guess the Relative" you must fall within the following criteria:
