To get my full moneys worth out of the beard, we could provide a hapless contestent with 24 family trees submitted by members in the USA - and said to be hot matches with theirs. A whole hour of fun and laughter as they have to decide which of the trees containing Adam and Eve is a match - 'Real, not Real'?? And a block buster series of 'Lost' based on a party of ageing GR members flung together in Kew . '24' - Can Glen get to Norfolk, check out every Elmer in the county and back to Scotland before Mrs Glen notices his kilt is empty?

Heather Ancestry want to know how much to sponsor the first three series?

Possible theme tunes 'Annie,i'm not your daddy' 'Billie Jean' 'Living next door to Alice' (special adoption remix) 'Emma' and 'It started with a kiss' (by Hot Chocolate) and anything by the Thompson Twins. (sorry i'm a child of the eighties music era)

How about 'House Doctor goes on Location, Location'. GR member is assisted in finding house that g-g-g grandma was born in, then de-renovation team move in and rip out all the plumbing, electrics, wallpaper etc and return it to the way it would have looked back in 1830. All this, of course, while the hapless owners are away on a short holiday. Imagine their surprise when they return and are ushered in wearing blindfolds, so as not to spoil the surprise. Just think of the tears of joy they will shed! Problem with all these ideas is that, if it really catches on, there will be nobody left on this board - we shall all be glued to our TV sets. Tina

PS - OC, please can I join too? Although, admittedly, it does not worry me unduly when people get it all wrong. I just sit and hug myself, singing quietly 'I know better than you do, I know better than you do'. Tina

Glen, as I choked on a pizza slice thinking about your suggestions - the one we must do - The Generation Game. Six families can start off vying to win a trip to Utah and after a series of embarrassing and humilitating experiences - i.e. not having their white gloves at a records office, ending up in the tropical gardens area of Kew, thinking the LMA is a record label etc. the successful tribe are awarded an honarary baptism by the LDS live on tv and then we see them board a plane for a months holiday under the mountain in Utah surrounded by every name in the world to sort through.

Of course, me being an intellectual, I rather favour setting the questions for 'Millionaire' 'And now - the one million pound question - is PHTHISIS a) A Himalayan flower b) A thesis, as written by Blair's wunderkids c) A Korean make of car d) Wrongly spelled. (Lots of spiteful fun to be had here - the winner gets one million, we all write in and tell them its wrong, and what it really is, the winner loses his million - with a bit of luck and natural justice, he will be the GR member who is passing my false tree round the Internet) OC

Thanks Glen Always was a bit slow on the uptake! But yes the combination of Heather and Tinsel Knickers does have that effect on me too. Pauline

And for those badly overgrown and neglected trees you will be delighted with............ Underground Force, your host Charlie Dumbsmuck unearths the beauty within your tree,whilst Tmmoy Wailsh constructs a weatherproof gazebo for your certificates to be displayed in,all in two days. Of course there is one problematic area,the religious channel also requires a 'family programme',now that DOES need work.
