I usually enjoy watching Who Do You Think You Are but have just switched off in disgust at Kate Winslet's histrionics at finding the child of an ancestor died at 5 years old in the early 19th century. Wow, that was unusual.

I'd saved it to watch tonight Wendy. Not often you get upset like that so I have to watch it!

Once talked to a elderly lady who said she had had 9 children. God got 5 and I got 4. As a child I remember my pals mother losing her baby at a very early age. The coffin was set near the front room window so that neighbours could pay their respect without having to go into the house.

I stuck with it, but I thought she went way over the top. Some of the actors always seem to have to over act.

It's the history relating to slavery and POW camps that upset me. Sometimes it makes it still feel so close.
I know I'm in my own little world, but it's OK... they know me here. :)

Such things affect me still Cathy.
I watched Winslett and thought that her reactions indicated that a) She was over acting all the time and b) That she has no reference for what she was hearing apart from her own self-interest. She had no concept of frame of reference and judged everything by her own standards. I switched her off also, it was all about her and her feelings and not the ancestors.
