    What is DNA Journey about?

    DNA Journey is a geneaology show – a little bit like BBC’s Who Do You Think You Are? with a twist.

    Rather than just one celebrity and a team of researchers, DNA Journey pairs celebrities and gets them to embark on a road trip to find out about their family history using a mix of DNA and genealogy – often meeting relatives they never knew existed.

    Romesh Ranganathan and Rob Beckett appear on the first episode of DNA Journey. The two comedians – who you might recognise from shows like Taskmaster, Rob & Romesh VS, and – examine their own past and each other’s in this episode. They start by asking Romesh’s mum if she knows the name of his paternal grandparents (she does not).

    Good Morning Britain hosts Alison Hammond and Kate Garraway appear in the second episode of DNA Journey. The official ITV synopsis for this episode explains that “from Bristol to London and Jamaica, they cover the globe and find out that some of their own colourful and extraordinary ancestors would definitely make an eye-opening item of one of their morning shows.”

    The remaining episodes of the series will see comedians and Tom Allen paired together, as well as Gavin & Stacey actors Alison Steadman and Larry Lamb.

    When and how can I watch DNA Journey?

    DNA Journey begins on ITV on Thursday 29 September at 9pm with Romesh Ranganathan and Rob Beckett’s episode. It will continue each week on Thursdays thereafter, with Kate Garraway and Alison Hammond’s episode airing Thursday 6 October at 9pm.

    How many episodes is DNA Journey?

    Each episode is a full hour long, meaning with breaks they air in the 9pm to 10:15pm slot.

    Why should I watch DNA Journey?

    It’s one to check out if you’re a fan of this kind of light entertainment geneaology show – things like Who Do You Think You Are? or Heir Hunters spring to mind as obvious comparisons – or if you’re fond of any of the celebrities involved. It’s likely also a good one to watch if you’re interested in examining your own family history too, because you might pick up a few tips and tricks on how to go about that (even without an ITV budget).
