Coming Home

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Thurs­day, 9pm, Bio If you fancy an orgy of ge­neal­ogy, why not tune in to Coming Home tonight, hot on the heels of last night’s Who Do You Think You Are?. The premise is strik­ingly sim­i­lar. In both a blonde Bri­tish tele­vi­sion per­son­al­ity, in this case Sarah Greene, best known as the youngest pre­sen­ter on Blue Peter and there­fore the face of Bri­tish chil­dren’s tele­vi­sion in the 1980s and 90s, ex­plores her roots. Just as Sa­man­tha Wo­mack is on a mis­sion to find de­tails for her fa­ther, Greene, who lost her mother just a month be­fore this pro­gram be­gan, is also on an emo­tional roller­coaster. I must ad­mit I find the por­ing over of musty records and the shock rev­e­la­tions about skele­tons in the closet a lit­tle te­dious, but at least in this ver­sion you get to ex­plore Wales along with Greene.
