The new series of Heir Hunter is coming:


Monday 30th June @9.15 BBC1


Elisabeth Report 29 Jun 2008 17:26

I shall be most interested in this series.

One of the people mentioned in the last series, who had our family surname, left more than £1M, and died intestate. The solicitors searching contacted a relative, in an appropriate area, but he wasn't known to anyone in the family.

Try as I might, I couldn't make a connection! I often wonder what happened to his fortune.

Wonder why the programme is being shown in the morning.

Surely worth an evening spot.


Helen1959 Report 29 Jun 2008 18:03

Wish they would show it of an evening, so that all us full time workers can see it.

I've never heard of it before but I'll be sure to check it out as I have to be up early for workmen tomorrow LOL.

Thanks for the heads up.

I thought you might have already know but posted in case it was known. I will be watching it. I think it is worthy of an evening slot but i think they would cut it to an 1/2 hour show. Its not on long enough for me and sometimes they just make it look to easy. The best bit if you being looked for and are found they have your family tree done so as to show you your connection.

Worth a nudge up

No sign yet of the father & son team that was featured in the last series.

I liked the approach of the the Lord & Lady team to go for the small amounts that the large firms would not be interested in.


TinaElizabeth Report 30 Jun 2008 13:36

I wonder why they haven't made an appearance?

I too like the approach of the Lord and Lady team.

I wonder how many people don't take the call from Heir Hunters seriously. It must be a worrying call to take as the caller, who is unknown to you but seems to know so much and then goes on to ask questions about close family. Very scary i imagine if your either on your own or elderly.

I'd not seen this before and thoroughly enjoyed it. I can't help but think what an exciting and fascinating job it must be.

Theresa, Do you have Virgin Telly? you can watch the show on Demand until next Sunday. I shall be doing that later as I've only just come in and am watching the tennis at the mo.
