    It was reported that Ronnie Wood was to have been on this series but he is of Bargeman/Romany stock and it has taken too long to sort his family history out, so it has been relegated to the series next year. I do hope they do it, he is a 'local' boy (my friend's husband went to school with his sister), that aside, it would be good to see how they trace the more difficult ancestoral lines.

    I do recognise some of the names for this series but as long as their families are interesting I do not really care who the 'name' is.

    I hope they do it too, I've just found barge men in my family, although I'm not sure if they are Romany. That would be very interesting
