    RED Production Company (a STUDIOCANAL company) in association with Bright Pictures TV, Buddy Club Productions and Genial Productions. 

    Episode 1

    For Alice (Keeley Hawes), Harry (Jason Merrells) and their daughter, Charlotte (Isabella Pappas), moving into their new home should have been a dream come true. But it quickly turns into a nightmare when Alice discovers Harry dead at the bottom of the stairs. Harry designed the smart house, so it’s weird and wonderful, and one more disorientation for Alice on top of her sense of loss and abandonment. Alice’s beloved partner is no more, and now she can’t find the fridge.

    Family should be a source of comfort, but Harry’s parents, Minnie (Gemma Jones) and Gerry (Kenneth Cranham), keep popping round uninvited. Whilst Alice’s own parents, Roger (Nigel Havers) and Sarah (Joanna Lumley), only seem to add to her list of problems.

    With Harry gone and Alice struggling to cope, Charlotte is forced to bottle up her grief and be the responsible one. Especially when the police turn up asking questions about the night that Harry died. To make matters worse, more unexpected visitors start knocking on Alice’s door, and she begins to realise that Harry’s business debt wasn’t the only secret he kept hidden from her.

    Episode 2

    Meeting George (George Webster) leaves Alice shaken. He does look like Harry, but why didn’t he show up when Harry was alive? Before Alice (Keeley Hawes) can deal with that revelation, first she must arrange a funeral for the man she loved. Alice can’t bear the thought of Harry in a graveyard and finds herself at loggerheads with Minnie (Gemma Jones) and Gerry (Kenneth Cranham) over what Harry would have wanted.

    Meanwhile the police continue to look for an unidentified witness captured on the CCTV of Harry’s fall. Alice and Charlotte (Isabella Pappas) decide to take matters into their own hands and come up with a plan to bury Harry at home. But Gerry detests the idea. He reminds Alice that they still need to sell the house to pay off the inheritance tax - and no one’s going to buy it with a fresh grave in the garden!

    Alice ploughs on regardless, enlisting Nathan (Rhashan Stone) and his bereavement group to help with her unconventional plans. Despite all the obstacles the home burial is a success, but Charlotte drops a bombshell which leaves Alice with even more unanswered questions.

    Episode 3

    Charlotte (Isabelle Pappas) decides that she’s ready to return to school, but Alice (Keeley Hawes) feels lost without her and struggles to cope. Before the inquest into Harry’s death can go ahead the police must identify the mysterious figure on the CCTV. With George (George Webster) becoming increasingly evasive, Alice is forced to go behind his back to get the answers she needs.

    Charlotte starts speaking about her grief to the school counsellor and encourages her mum to find some help of her own. She agrees to give Nathan’s (Rhashan Stone) bereavement group a try, but Alice isn’t convinced it’s the right fit for her, and the feeling seems to be mutual. She wants to be there for Charlotte, but Alice’s increasingly irresponsible behaviour starts to cause a rift between them. To Alice’s surprise, the whole family show up at the inquest to offer their support, and answers about the night that Harry died finally emerge. Harry’s parents might be welcoming to George, but their fragile truce with Alice is about to face its bigger test yet.

    Episode 4

    Alice (Keeley Hawes) is struggling to sleep, growing desperately short of money, and Gerry (Ken Cranham) has just accepted an offer on the house behind her back. In order to stop her home from being sold from under her, Alice must find a way to disrupt the sale and make big money fast. Whilst Charlotte (Isabella Pappas) gets to know George (George Webster), Alice uncovers a deed for land in Harry’s name and wonders if this could be the lifeline she’s been hoping for.

    Tanvi (Ayesha Dharker) is quick to underestimate Alice and claims that the land is contaminated and worthless. But when Alice learns that she owns the other half of Harry’s business, she makes a deal to save her home and sell the flats right under Tanvi’s nose. Minnie (Gemma Jones) and Gerry are furious when the house sale falls through. How will they pay the inheritance tax now? For Gerry it’s the final straw, and Alice’s relationship with Harry’s parents seems to be broken beyond repair. A final ultimatum from Tanvi puts Alice’s new business savvy to the test, and leaves her thinking - what would Harry do?

    Episode 5

    Alice (Keeley Hawes) decides to reject Tanvi’s (Ayesha Dharker) offer - Harry would have wanted Alice to develop the land herself with the support of their family. But it’s not long before the land project is overshadowed, as Nicola (Sharon Rooney) blurts out that Alice is also hoping to try for Harry’s baby using the sperm that he mysteriously stored before he died. Everyone seems supportive. Apart from Charlotte (Isabella Pappas), who can’t help feeling like she’s not enough. And Sarah (Joanna Lumley), who thinks her daughter would be insane to have a dead man’s baby. So, when the fertility clinic reject Alice’s request, it’s Nicola who steps up and helps her acquire the deposit. Alice allows Nicola to move into the house and together they join the bereavement group on a bowling night out, but Alice soon ends up in a situation she clearly isn’t ready for. Whilst Charlotte and George (George Webster) grow closer, Alice still suspects it’s the inheritance money that George really cares about, and a recording on his phone could contain the answers she’s been searching for...

    Episode 6

    With a newfound confidence Alice is determined to develop Harry’s land, but can she solve her growing list of problems before trying for Harry’s baby? Alice (Keeley Hawes) needs to make enough money to save the house and find a way to mend bridges with her family. But when her parents’ marriage falls to pieces, Roger (Nigel Havers) decides to leave Sarah (Joanna Lumley) and becomes Alice’s latest uninvited lodger. With the house more crowded than ever, tension between Charlotte (Isabella Pappas) and Alice reaches breaking point and Charlotte escapes to Sarah’s for some peace and quiet. Hurt, frustrated, and unable to tick anything off her to- do list, Alice decides to organise a family celebration to bring everyone back together. A recording on George’s phone finally reveals his true colours and a new revelation forces Alice to confront Tanvi (Ayesha Dharker) with a difficult question. Alice still has a long way to go, but her relationship with Charlotte will prove stronger than ever and together they’re one step closer to saving the house that Harry built.

    Series overview

    Critically acclaimed Marcella, starring Anna Friel, returns to ITV for the highly anticipated third series.

    Innovative and gripping crime drama Marcella from leading UK independent content production company Buccaneer Media is returning to ITV.

    Created by internationally renowned screenwriter and novelist Hans Rosenfeldt and Nicola Larder, Marcella stars Emmy® award winner Anna Friel (Butterfly, Broken, American Odyssey) in the title role. Hugo Speer (The Musketeers, Britannia, The Full Monty) and Ray Panthaki (Away, Colette, One Crazy Thing) also return to the series whilst Amanda Burton (Waterloo Road, Silent Witness) joins the drama as the formidable matriarch of the Maguire family.

    Following on from the dramatic conclusion of the previous series, the eight new episodes focus upon Marcella’s new life in Belfast as an undercover detective. She has taken on the identity of Keira and has infiltrated the infamous Maguire family, but as she investigates their activities, questions come to the fore about how much she has embraced Keira’s persona and personality and left Marcella behind.

    In true Marcella style, the series has interweaving storylines with strands focusing upon the Maguires’ criminal operations. As she inhabits the character of Keira, Marcella’s quest for the truth puts her in danger and others in harm’s way. Her undercover role makes her take risks, but will her old life eventually catch up with her?

    An array of new cast members are welcomed to the series including Amanda Burton (Waterloo Road, Silent Witness) who takes on the role of Katherine, the matriarch of the Maguire family; Aaron McCusker (Bohemian Rhapsody, Fortitude, Shameless) plays her son, Finn Maguire; whilst Hugo Speer (The Musketeers, Britannia, The Full Monty), who made a brief appearance in the final scenes of series two, reprises his role as Frank Young, Marcella’s undercover handler. Kelly Gough (The Fall, Broadchurch) also joins the cast, taking the role of Stacey, Katherine’s daughter; Martin McCann (Death & Nightingales, The Frankenstein Chronicles) plays Stacey’s husband, with Eugene O’Hare (The Fall, Death & Nightingales) as local police officer Eddie. Michael Colgan (X Company, My Mother and Other Strangers) plays Rory Maguire, whilst Paul Kennedy (Death & Nightingales, No Offence) plays Lawrence, Marcella’s initial contact within the crime family and Glen Wallace (River City, The Secret) is Matt, a past acquaintance.

    Marcella is executive produced by Rosenfeldt, Buccaneer Media’s founder Tony Wood, who created the joint venture production company in partnership with global entertainment company, Cineflix Media, and Anna Friel.

    The series is produced by Sue de Beauvoir and Amanda Black. The first four episodes are directed by Gilles Bannier with Ashley Pearce directed the following four.

    Hans Rosenfeldt has written the first two episodes and story-lined episodes three to eight. The writers of these episodes are David Allison (Bedlam, The Case), Rachel Flowerday (Father Brown, The Moonstone) Mike Walden (The Frankenstein Chronicle), Matthew Thomas (The Chameleon, Valentine’s Kiss) and Tim Loane (Das Boot, Versailles).

    The series was filmed entirely on location in and around Belfast. Cineflix Rights has exclusive worldwide distribution rights to the series.

    Episode 1

    Marcella is working deep undercover in Belfast, investigating the Maguire crime family. She’s got a distinct new look but the faint outline of the scar on her face is still visible. Having started a relationship with Lawrence, the accountant for the business, Marcella is deep behind enemy lines as her alias Keira Devlin. The family business is run by matriarch Katherine and her two sons; the OCD suffering Rory and the tempestuous Finn. The daughter, Stacey, is heavily pregnant and married to reckless and dangerous Bobby who works for the business but has a secret drug business as a sideline. The family have a stronghold over the ports, trafficking drugs and people through the borders. They have deep pockets and control the local police. 

    Wanting to ingratiate herself deeper into the family, Marcella informs the family that Lawrence is embezzling. Lawrence meets a grizzly end, but Marcella is now closer to the family and begins a relationship with Finn. 

    Bobby, wanting to distance himself from the drug business before the family find out, violently assaults a dealer on the estate. Later, whilst in London, Bobby murders Isambard Grey at a nightclub, smashing a jeroboam of Champagne over his head during an altercation. DSI Rav Sangha is assigned the case. 

    We meet 13-year-old Jessie, a young girl addicted to drugs and rebelling against the impending return of her imprisoned father Jack. Jack is serving time for the Maguire family, as a faithful henchman. 

    When the bodies of 10 trafficked workers are discovered at the docks, politician Alexander Monroe declares war on the Maguire family. 

    Episode 2

    Rav heads to Belfast to investigate Bobby while Marcella delves deeper into the Maguires’ criminal world. Marcella shares information with Frank that leads to subsequent raids on the family businesses. They quickly suspect a rat…

    On her way to meet Frank, someone recognizes Marcella. She recognizes him as someone from her past… Matthew Gaskill. Could her cover be blown? Frank wants to extract her, she’s too close to the family and it breaches codes of conduct, but Marcella insists she’s closer than ever. She promises to deliver the whole family to justice; it will be worth the risk.  

    In London, Rav convinces a witness to reveal Isambard’s killer, sending him to Belfast to investigate Bobby Barrett. Rav arrives at Belfast police station, on the warpath. Eddie, the Maguire police informant, quickly warns Finn of his arrival and his interest in Bobby.

    Finn is incandescent with Bobby, but Marcella offers up some advice to help the case, which only helps build trust with the family. 
    Marcella finds that someone has pinned a sheet of music on her windscreen… later she discovers the music is the lullaby from baby Juliet’s music box. She begins to have nightmares about her former life, her past trauma closing in around her. She takes drugs to drown out the painful memories.

    We meet Aaron, the drug dealer who has taken the helm on the estate. He sells Jessie some poorly cut gear that leads to a tragic ending. Aaron and his disabled brother are now in the firing line with Bobby and the law, but which is worse?
    Bobby turns himself in, knowing that they’ve threatened the witness into withdrawing her statement, therefore exonerating Bobby as a suspect. Rav is furious, he knows he needs to stay in Belfast and investigate Bobby and the family he works for. His boss tells him that there’s another operation going on with an undercover operative…

    Episode 3

    The fallout from Jessie’s death ripples through the community as Jack is released after a long stint in prison. 

    At the community memorial for Jessie, Rav learns that Marcella is the undercover operative. He’s shocked, he thought she was dead. He issues a warrant for the arrest of the Maguire family, a ploy to get Marcella alone in an interview room. The Maguires are hauled into the police station to be interviewed where Rav speaks to Marcella for the first time since the end of the previous series. Rav has mourned for her, he thought she was dead. He is torn between anger and his concern. He knows that the Maguires are dangerous and MARCELLA is not well, but Marcella is steely and composed… She is Keira.

    Marcella receives a mysterious package at the Maguire mansion. Inside is a fob for a locker at the Metropolitan Arts Centre… Katherine is suspicious, and Marcella is dumbfounded. She heads to the gallery and finds a locker containing newspaper articles reporting on her death. Who knows the truth? 

    As a bargaining chip, to get Alexander Monroe off their back, Katherine offers to find the dealer who sold Jessie the drugs. If she finds him, then Monroe will look like the hero. Not knowing this arrangement has been made, Bobby sets out to find Aaron and take care of it himself. Marcella tries to save Aaron’s disabled brother, Danny, but she’s too late. 

    Episode 4

    Marcella’s mental state is beginning to fracture when she discovers more clues being left for her. She tries to recall her training, to become Keira Devlin and let her past go. 

    At the Maguire offices, the family are gathered in the boardroom for a war council. They need to do something about Bobby. So as not to hurt Stacey, they agree to send him away for a while. But as Marcella drives Bobby to the airport, their journey is intercepted by the police. Marcella slips into fugue.

    Bobby is taken to a safe house with police officers Gilmore and Walsh, where he is asked to rat on the family in exchange for immunity. The family are furious and perplexed when Eddie tells them that Bobby wasn’t arrested by the police… someone else took him.

    Katherine takes control back from Alexander Monroe once and for all, bringing Marcella to watch. To Katherine’s surprise, she is unfazed. It seems the Maguires’ brutality is truly beginning to seep into her. 

    Marcella and Finn bump into Matthew. In a jealous rage, Finn punches him in the face. Now beginning to suspect the legitimacy of her past, Finn asks Jack to investigate Marcella… starting with Matthew Gaskill. 

    Marcella returns to Lawrence’s house to discover a body. As she creeps over to the corpse, she realises that it’s a mannequin dressed in her clothing. Suspecting it’s a death threat, Marcella is terrified. 

    Episode 5

    Frank tries to placate a traumatised Marcella, who suspects he might be the one stalking her and fuelling her paranoia…

    At the Maguire offices, Marcella tells Finn that she had a drug relapse to cover for her absence. He’s shocked but grudgingly accepts the excuse, perhaps realising he’s becoming more attached to this girl than he intended. Katherine tells Marcella they’ve found out definitively that Bobby was not arrested by the police. Either someone else did, or Marcella’s version of events doesn’t add up. She knows that someone is lying…

    Realising she has to get to the bottom of who’s taken Bobby in order to clear herself of suspicion, Marcella investigates what happened to Bobby. She discovers that one of the men is on the disgraced police register. She sees her own face on the same database, along with Frank’s. It seems he has some skeletons hanging in his closet. 

    Marcella stakes out Gilmore’s house and discovers the evidence she needs. She questions Gilmore under duress and learns who hired him to take Bobby. The truth will send shockwaves through the family. 

    Marcella tells Rav the truth about Bobby so he can leave Belfast, his presence is compromising her work, so she tells him to stay away. He vows not to leave Belfast without her, but Marcella is unmoved, once again insisting that she is now Keira. 

    Sensing a divide between the family, Marcella reveals to Finn that she can help him take control of the family and persuades him to tell Stacey the truth about Bobby. This revelation will cause a divide and place Finn at the head of the table. Her own life may be in danger, but she’s becoming the puppeteer of the Maguires’ world…

    Frank has found Marcella’s stalker, so asks to meet her. Apprehensive she could be walking into a trap, Marcella arrives warily. But when Frank shows her footage of the person who left the newspaper clipping at the art gallery, the truth is worse than she could have expected.

    Episode 6

    We discover the origins of the Keira persona in flashback, and Marcella realises the extent to which the old Marcella is still haunting her. 

    Frank finds a wretched Marcella in a London underpass (at the end of Series Two) 9 days after she found out she killed her own baby, Juliet. 9 days after she mutilated her own face and left RAV for dead. Frank persuades her to come with him to Belfast, to go undercover. 

    Marcella begins her training. Frank puts her on medication and teaches her to forget the past, to work through her fugues and assume a new persona. She will become Keira Devlin and infiltrate the Maguire crime family. Marcella spots “Sally and Niamh” tattooed on Frank’s shoulders. When questioned, his cagey response rouses her suspicion. 

    Back in the present, Marcella discovers a tattoo parlour receipt with curiosity – before realising with horror that she has a tattoo across her back… She has no memory of getting it and the wording could blow her cover. 

    Katherine realises Stacey and her baby have disappeared from the hospital. On the phone, Stacey tells her mother calmly she knows the truth about Bobby – so she’s leaving the family. Katherine, refusing to lose the granddaughter she so desperately wanted, uses her control within the police to halt Stacey’s departure. Stacey reaches out to Marcella to help her escape the family… Will Marcella take the risk?

    Meanwhile Marcella has received a mysterious text telling her to come to a hotel room. When she arrives and pushes the door open, she’s confronted by an investigation-style display of her old life as Marcella Backland. She thinks her stalker may be responsible, until she sees Rav enter the room. 

    Episode 7

    Marcella cuts ties with her old life once and for all as she engineers to become the centre of the Maguire family with Finn. Meanwhile Marcella’s old conscience continues to threaten her.

    The hotel room display turns out to be Rav’s last ditch attempt to persuade Marcella to return to her old life. He uses her kids to appeal to her, but it falls on deaf ears. She can’t go back.

    Finn offer Rory a deal: why don’t you and I run the company, without Ma? Rory refuses. So, Finn decides to humiliate his brother into submission. Rory will need to accept Finn is the boss from now on.

    Marcella continues cutting ties with her past by turning on Frank, who she learns was using her for his own personal vendetta against the Maguire’s. The mission is now over, Marcella now has a new objective. She tells Matthew Gaskill to forget her, to forget the romance they shared as kids. He offers her the chance to escape and her head spins. 

    Finn orders Eddie to kill Stacey, she poses a great risk to the family and must be taken care of. Marcella convinces Finn to call off the hit and Rav is able to intervene. In doing so, he discovers that Eddie is working for the Maguire’s. 

    Marcella seduces Finn to take full control of the family, to take it from his mother. The shock of the confrontation causes Katherine to have a stroke. 

    Episode 8

    The fault lines Marcella has set in motion within the family reach crisis point.

    Marcella wakes from a fugue in Finn’s car. Her hair is no longer the blonde hair of Keira, but the brunette shade of Marcella’s. She discovers something terrible in the boot of the car. Reeling, she tries to cover her tracks, but in doing so, she feels something change deep inside her – a piece of the old Marcella has returned.

    She has decided it’s time to get out of the Maguire household – but when she calls Frank to extract her, she gets no answer. 

    Marcella comes clean to Stacey and vows to get her and the baby out. 

    Jack convinces Rory to look deeper into Keira’s past and eventually they discover the real Marcella Backland. Her cover is blown. 

    Frank appears on the Maguire grounds, drunk, brandishing a weapon, intent on taking his own revenge on the family but suddenly he feels the click of a gun at his back, as Marcella runs through the grounds with Finn in pursuit – they hear “POLICE”! Rav, has returned to save his friend but is it all too late.

    Long Lost Family: What Happened Next (Series 6)

    Series overview:

    Over the past decade, Long Lost Family has reunited 418 people with missing relatives. We’ve helped 98 parents to find children they thought they would never see again.  We’ve brought 209 siblings together, often for the first time in their lives. But meeting is just the beginning; how easy is it to build relationships after a lifetime apart?

    ***

    In this episode, we catch up with people, whose lives have been changed forever, to find out ‘What Happened Next?’   

    Anne Clegg and her mother Janet were first reunited nearly a decade ago.  Anne had been adopted as a baby, but ‘never felt completely and utterly loved’ because her birth mother had given her away.   When we found Janet, we discovered that she had never forgotten her first born and had always longed to reconnect with Anne.   In ‘What Happened Next’ Anne reveals the impact their successful mother-daughter relationship has had on her life; ‘It’s completely changed me’.  Everything from Anne’s confidence to her love life has improved.  But tragically, two years ago, Janet suffered a massive stroke and now it is Anne’s turn to offer emotional support.

    In our second story, we catch up with grandmother, Alice Jones, who originally came to us looking for her little brother Sam.  Alice’s birth parents were Windrush migrants from Jamaica, who had an affair before their spouses arrived in the UK.  Alice was later raised by her father and his wife and only saw her birth mother once more, when she was 12.   On this occasion Alice also met Sam, her younger half-brother, and bonded with him.  But when the visit ended, she never saw Sam again.  We traced Sam and he revealed that Alice had two more brothers – John and Richard – and they were happily reunited.  In ‘What Happened Next’ we catch up with Alice, Sam and John (Richard didn’t want to appear on camera).  In an amazing co-incidence Alice and John have discovered that they live at different ends of the same street and now see each other almost daily.  Alice’s brothers have also been able to tell her about her birth mother’s struggles, which has helped Alice to come to terms with the feelings of rejection she has carried all her life.  Together, Alice and her brothers now plan to commemorate their mother together.

    In our third story, we catch up with Sharon Harte and her sisters Carole, Terri and Sandra.  Sharon came to us looking for her birth mother, and though we discovered that she had passed away, we were able to introduce Sharon to her half-sisters.   It’s now been nearly three years since they first met, and their relationship has gone from strength to strength.  In ‘What Happened Next’ we find out how they have supported each other through the best and the worst of times; from tragic bereavements to family celebrations.

    Long Lost Family Born Without Trace

    Series overview

    The BAFTA-nominated programme returns for a third series, as presenters Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell reveal more astonishing stories of foundlings desperate to discover their identities and meet birth family, after a lifetime of not knowing where they came from.

    Foundlings are people abandoned as babies, often in the first hours and days of their lives.  Born without trace, with no birth record or name, until now they have been unable to solve the ultimate mystery of their lives – who they are.

    Over the last four years, the team behind Long Lost Family has combined cutting-edge genetic genealogy with DNA testing technology to try to help more than 30 foundlings unlock the secrets of their past.

    The stories in this brand new series span five decades: from a woman left over 70 years ago on a luggage rack of a train in Paddington station, to a young man left in toilets near a football stadium in Wolverhampton as recently as 1989.

    Episode 3

    In episode three we meet 31-year-old Steve, who was left in public toilets near a football stadium in Wolverhampton, and Sarah Dunkley, whose mother disappeared from the hospital after giving birth, without a trace.

    At the time Steve was found near the stadium, he was named after Wolverhampton Wanderers’ star player of the moment, Steve Bull. From an early age Steve’s adoptive parents told him about his abandonment, but despite a public appeal, he has grown up with no information about who left him and why. Steve says: “I was just the baby who was found. My history before is 100% unknown.”

    In this programme, the truth is finally discovered and he finds out about his birth mother’s desperate situation…

    Many foundlings like Steve are left to be discovered in public places like toilets or phone boxes, but uniquely amongst the foundlings who have approached the programme, Sarah Dunkley was actually born in a hospital. Sarah even has records of her birth at the hospital and a description of her birth mother, but tragically her mother disappeared the day after she was born. Intriguingly Sarah’s mother gave a false name and false addresses on the records, so Sarah is no nearer to finding out who she is.

    Sarah says: “After she disappeared from the hospital they tried to trace her and came to the address (she had given) but found it was a derelict building…I think she was probably in a desperate place, maybe scared, maybe it was a pregnancy that was a secret to her closest family? It would be amazing to know what happened, hopefully somewhere somebody can tell me.

    With further detective work the search unveils the identity of both of their parents and the story behind their abandonment.

    Long Lost Family Born Without Trace

    Series overview

    The BAFTA-nominated programme returns for a third series, as presenters Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell reveal more astonishing stories of foundlings desperate to discover their identities and meet birth family, after a lifetime of not knowing where they came from.

    Foundlings are people abandoned as babies, often in the first hours and days of their lives.  Born without trace, with no birth record or name, until now they have been unable to solve the ultimate mystery of their lives – who they are.

    Over the last four years, the team behind Long Lost Family has combined cutting-edge genetic genealogy with DNA testing technology to try to help more than 30 foundlings unlock the secrets of their past.

    The stories in this brand new series span five decades: from a woman left over 70 years ago on a luggage rack of a train in Paddington station, to a young man left in toilets near a football stadium in Wolverhampton as recently as 1989.

    Episode 2

    Episode two contains two similarly jaw-dropping stories, a woman left on a luggage rack of a train in Paddington station just after World War II, and a young foundling left by a church in Liverpool in 1987.

    74-year-old Marguerite Huggett believes that she’s reached her last chance of finding anyone alive who might be able to tell her anything about her beginnings. With nothing to go on and no names on her birth certificate, she wonders if her father could have been a soldier passing through London after the war and whether her mother could have been travelling on the train where Marguerite was found or lived in the Paddington area. But she has had no way of knowing the truth: “It’s knowing the reason that I was abandoned, that’s the drive to find my birth parents.”

    By placing her DNA on an online database that traces birth relatives, and following a three-year investigation of the initial matches, the search team remarkably discovers the identity of both her birth mother and her birth father...

    Rachel Selby has always thought she was left on church steps in Liverpool but has never dared to go back to see the site of her abandonment. Now for the first time she returns and meets the priest living next door, who tells her she was actually discovered on the doorstep of his Presbytery and that he believes her mother must have known him and his church and left her there deliberately to be safe.

    Although this information offers Rachel comfort, she is still left wanting to know where she came from. Rachel explains: “I need to know the truth, it’s still this burning desire. Everybody deserves to know their identity.”...

    Long Lost Family: Born Without Trace

    Series overview

    The BAFTA-nominated programme returns for a third series, as presenters Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell reveal more astonishing stories of foundlings desperate to discover their identities and meet birth family, after a lifetime of not knowing where they came from.

    Foundlings are people abandoned as babies, often in the first hours and days of their lives.  Born without trace, with no birth record or name, until now they have been unable to solve the ultimate mystery of their lives – who they are.

    Over the last four years, the team behind Long Lost Family has combined cutting-edge genetic genealogy with DNA testing technology to try to help more than 30 foundlings unlock the secrets of their past.

    The stories in this brand new series span five decades: from a woman left over 70 years ago on a luggage rack of a train in Paddington station, to a young man left in toilets near a football stadium in Wolverhampton as recently as 1989.

    Episode 1

    Episode one features two foundlings abandoned in Chesterfield just over 18 months apart in the 1980s, Helen Knox and Victoria Vardy.

    On a cold, frosty morning in December 1988 Helen Knox, then just a few hours old, was discovered in a box outside a hospital. Her parents saw her story on the local news and agreed to adopt her. She had a happy upbringing and is now engaged with two children of her own.

    But she’s always struggled with not knowing anything about her very beginnings. She says: “I don't know what the first few hours of my life were like, where I was and who I was with, who left me there.”

    The only keepsakes Helen has to hold onto are the hospital name tag she was given as a baby for ‘Gill Scarsdale,’ named after the nurse who looked after her and the hospital where she was left, and some photos of her taken with the maternity nurses.

    The search team traces two of these nurses, Gill and Susan, and Helen is reunited with them for the first time in over 30 years. It’s an emotional meeting and they share their memories of her first days. But Helen is left with burning questions. She says: “I still want to know where I come from and who my birth parents are and why they left me”.

    Meanwhile another foundling, Victoria Vardy, who incredibly was also left in Chesterfield a year and a half before Helen, has also approached the programme for help to find her birth family.

    She was left just a few hundred metres from Helen in a department store stairwell in Elder Way and 33 years on, she returns to the stairwell and reflects on the situation her birth mother must have been in. “To leave a baby in a department store on a busy Saturday morning, you’ve got to be desperate. Why? I’ve no idea.”

    Victoria had a very happy adoption and now has a daughter of her own. But despite a nationwide media appeal for any information nearly ten years ago, Victoria is still no further to knowing answers. The only clues she has are the holdall and clothes that she was left in and the news reports from the time. These reports mention a bus ticket found in the bag showing that an adult and child had travelled together; Victoria wonders, “Could it have been that my mum was the adult and the child is a sibling?”

    Only a handful of babies are abandoned each year in the UK, so with two baby girls left in close proximity in the same town and with only a year-and-a-half between them, the team investigate whether there could be a connection.

    But what they uncover takes everyone by surprise and ultimately one of the most emotional reunions in the programme’s history…

    Innocent

    This new four-part drama broadcasts over four consecutive nights: Monday 17 May to Thursday 20 May inclusive at 9pm on ITV.

    Series overview

    When Matty is found dead, brutally stabbed with a broken cider bottle, suspicion falls upon teacher Sally Wright who had admitted to taking special interest in the boy. In spite of having no criminal record, no history of violence and vehemently protesting her innocence and the fact she couldn’t be placed at the remote beauty spot on the day Matty was found murdered, Sally was convicted by a majority verdict and sentenced to a minimum of 15 years in jail.

    The new four-part series opens with Sally in the dock of Carlisle Crown Court, steely and determined to prove her innocence and that she’s been the victim of a terrible miscarriage of justice. As she waits for the jury to deliver on her appeal, Sally contemplates how she’s lost everything she holds dear. Her relationship, home and marriage to Probation Officer, Sam, her job as Head of English at a local comprehensive, her status and good name in the community, and personal contact with her aging mother who now lives in a care home.

    When the forewoman pronounces Sally is ‘not guilty’ of the crime which has destroyed her life her first thoughts are for Matty and his parents, John and Maria Taylor, who are still living their nightmare.

    Hell-bent on reclaiming some of her life, Sally sets out to help the police seek answers and find the real killer. DCI Michael Braithwaite, returning to work after a period of absence, is charged with re-investigating the case and is determined to discover the true identity of Matty’s killer. 

    Episode 1

    Martin Lewis' Extreme Savers

    Series overview

    "It feels a little scary to start off with. But we were using these cloths as wet wipes, for our kids. So actually, we felt like, 'Oh why would that suddenly change when they’re out of nappies?' And if it’s good enough for them, why is it not good enough for me?" - Extreme saver Charlotte Jessop on reusable toilet rolls

    In this new four-part series, ITV's financial guru Martin Lewis introduces some of Britain's most extreme savers - who are willing to keep hold of their cash.

    From those who utilise reusable toilet rolls to those who shower in rainwater, to foraging for food and living off-grid - this programme features people who have made it their life's mission to save as much cash as they can, often using the advice of Martin, but taking it even further.

    A MultiStory Media production for ITV

    Episode 1

    The first episode features 'comper' Katrina Stevenson, who has claimed thousands of pounds worth of prizes by entering competitions. It all started when she won a holiday - and decided to go for more. She says: "If I needed something, or it was something that I knew I’d struggle to get, then I’d purposely go out, search magazines, search online for that specific thing, and put energy into it that way."

    But her biggest prize was something rather special - her child - and she says: "My best win, it even sounds crazy saying it, but it is my son. I won free IVF treatment abroad in Norway, I was trying for nine years. We had four losses, we were struggling to save for IVF. So, I put all my energy into trying to find if there were any sort of IVF competitions. I was doing it for a good couple of weeks, and then I came across an advert in a magazine. So, I entered all my information, emailed it over, and I didn’t think anything would come of it, I didn’t think I’d hear back. And then a few weeks later at work, I got a call saying that you’ve won, and can we arrange to fly you out to Norway, so we can start sort of your treatment, which was just unreal."

    Two attempts later,  her son Dylan was the result, and she says: "Competitions have definitely changed my life, and if I can win like the biggest joy in my life, then of course there’s going to be opportunities for people out there, so just give it a go, because maybe it’ll change your life, like it has with me."

    The show also features Lee from Stoke on Trent, who was so fed up with paying extra charges for luggage on flights he had a special coat made - and now travels with all he needs in his coat of many pockets - and pays no fees.

    Charlotte Jessop from Norfolk tells the programme she needed to cut back on spending after stepping back from work to spend more time with her family, so makes her own food wraps, sanitary products and nappies - and uses reusable toilet rolls.

    Finally 73-year-old Eric Hawkins takes saving water and money very seriously by taking advantage of a free commodity - rain. He collects every drop he can and has managed to cut his water bills by thousands over the years, and says:

    "The two upstairs toilets are all used with rainwater, the bath that my wife has is rainwater, my shower is rainwater and [the] kitchen sink for hot water for washing is rainwater.  I also use the rainwater stored in the summertime, to water all my plants at the back of the garden."

    Trevor McDonald & Charlene White: Has George Floyd Changed Britain?

    “The conversation is only spoken about or mentioned or highlighted when something happens. Racism is an ongoing struggle, day in, day out, for Black people." - John Barnes

    As we approach the one-year anniversary of the death of George Floyd, Sir Trevor McDonald and Charlene White host a new hour-long documentary for ITV exploring its impact for people living in the UK.

    This programme investigates the consequences of the tragedy and the conversations that have followed in Britain and around the world.

    Sir Trevor and Charlene examine the effect of the Black Lives Matter movement and, in the wake of recent studies, ask to what extent prejudice is embedded in British society.

    George Floyd’s death, and the circumstances around it, prompted a re-examination of race, racism and made Britain question what we stand for, who we really are and what needs to happen next.

    Sir Trevor and Charlene speak to people across Britain, from all walks of life – to gain an insight into the experiences of people in the UK. Floyd’s death prompted both prominent figures and members of the public to share their own stories – but, a year on, what has really changed?

    Among those featured in the documentary are teachers attempting to transform the curriculum in schools, mothers campaigning for better maternity outcomes in hospitals and representatives from historic institutions that are re-examining the past.

    The programme also hears from high profile public figures on why they’ve called for change and used their platforms to speak out about racism in the last year. 

    They include British athlete Commonwealth gold-winning British athlete Bianca Williams, who made headlines with her partner Ricardo Dos Santos last summer after they were controversially stopped, searched and handcuffed by police, with their 3-month old son in the car. Bianca recorded a distressing video and posted it online where it was viewed more than a million times. The Met later apologised to Bianca and have voluntarily referred the incident to the Independent Office for Police Conduct. She says she still feels the reverberations of the incident now after an online backlash against her, saying: "Until this day I still get trolled. I got called a race baiter. I had people on Twitter tagging TeamGB, tagging British Athletics, saying that I should be dropped, saying that I should never get to represent Great Britain again, people telling me to leave the country.”

    A recent report revealed Black women are four times more likely than white women to die during pregnancy or childbirth in the UK. The programme speaks to Sonah Paton, a founder of Black Mothers Matter - an organisation set up last year by three friends in Bristol to help Black mothers get information and support. She says: “It definitely affected how I felt through pregnancy. I just felt, as a Black woman, you can sometimes be made to feel a bit like you're being a bit hysterical or over the top… People are so quick to deny or to write off what's quite obvious racism or bias to me, and explain it away with anything, absolutely anything else than accept that it might be due to bias and racism."

    Aisha, a GP in the NHS, is hopeful conversations are now being had that will create change: “Change is always possible. If we don’t believe change is possible then – then what's the point? I do believe that the NHS can change, I do believe that people want it to change, and I do believe we’ll see significant changes in our lifetime.”

    In some of the most popular areas of British culture, like sport, change appears to be coming more slowly than in other parts of society. Ebony Rainford-Brent was the first Black woman to play for the England cricket team, and says: “I’m gonna be brutal with you about the numbers, it’s not great if you really unpick them. Zero Black board members as we speak today, zero Black chief executives, zero Black captains, zero Black directors of cricket, zero Black leaders in all the leadership positions.”

    England football legend John Barnes - once famously pictured backheeling a banana off the pitch - discusses the lack of Black managers in the game and in wider leadership positions, as well as his feelings on players taking the knee. He says: “It leads me to remember Kick It Out or Say No to Racism, 25 years ago. Twenty-five years later, nothing has changed."

    Sharon Aninakwa, Head of History at the Convent of Jesus And Mary Language College in London, believes the death of George Floyd, by raising the profile of Black Lives Matter, became a catalyst for change, saying: "I think it started a national conversation, I think it's created space for a dialogue and a true reckoning to happen with race in the country. And I think that’s a really significant achievement. I don't think there has been another movement that has really started to ask some serious questions about race in the way that this movement has."

    Foreign Office Minister James Cleverly believes there is hope for further change, saying: "I have seen change, I have seen the direction of travel. So, I am positive, I think we do have a duty to make sure we make that positive change happen as quickly as possible, we can't get lazy, we can't get complacent, but I do think there is a real desire to change."

    The Black Lives Matter movement has prompted many institutions to have difficult conversations, including Harewood House in Leeds, where Earl David Lascelles hopes to reconcile Harewood’s history and connections to the slave trade. He says: “I think it’s a period of history that as a nation, we’ve not come to terms with properly. I think that, until we do, a lot of the divisions, a lot of the conflicts, can’t be resolved until we understand our history properly.” 

    This is an ITN Productions programme for ITV.
