Long Lost Fam­ily

There are two firsts tonight as a fa­ther and a deaf woman search for rel­a­tives

TV Times - - Wednesday -

Dav­ina Mccall and Nicky Camp­bell in­ves­ti­gate two firsts for the show. Andy Mc­ni­chol from Wal­sall is the first fa­ther to ask the team to help find his child, who was adopted at birth against his wishes. When Andy’s girl­friend, Brenda, be­came preg­nant, he hoped to raise their son to­gether but, un­able to marry Brenda, she broke off con­tact and gave their son up for adop­tion. Also fea­tured is the story of Mary Davies from Lon­don, who is the first deaf per­son to ap­pear on the show. She is search­ing for her birth mother, who was young and un­mar­ried when she had Mary 56 years ago. Mary spent her first six years in chil­dren’s homes as she waited to find a fam­ily who were will­ing to adopt a deaf child.

Smiles all round as Andy is re­united with son John
