That Stephen Fry is Jewish and has spoken publicly about his Jewish roots I knew, but this article caught my attention in particular because it mentioned a television program that sounds very interesting. In BBC2's Who Do You Think You Are people - I suppose they are all some sort of celebrities, except for Mr Fry I do not know them, I am not too familiar with British entertainment today, shame on me - explore their family's history. Working on the historiography of my family and that of my wife is one of the projects that I am looking forward to after finishing my PhD, and it seems to me that genealogy can be turned into good television shows.
