Frank Gard­ner

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - NEW SERIES REVEALED -

The BBC’s Se­cu­rity Correspondent Frank Gard­ner was very close to his late mother, and wants to know more about her her­itage. He finds him­self in­ves­ti­gat­ing the fam­ily leg­end that his an­ces­tors ar­rived in Bri­tain with the Nor­mans, and along the way en­coun­ters Sir Michael Stan­hope, his 10x great grand­fa­ther and a knight of the Tu­dor court ac­cused of trea­son. Frank takes his story even fur­ther back and is as­ton­ished to dis­cover that his mother’s tales are closer to the truth than he could ever have imag­ined.
