    ITV's DNA Journey

    By Dave,

    I watched an episode of this on ITV X last night - mainly because it was about our local hero Johnny Vegas. Well, it was split with somebody called Alex Brooker, of who I was unfamiliar. Anyway, it was entertaining and it gave the participants a few genealogical nuggets of information that they previously didn't know about. I remember Johnny commenting once on record that the makers of 'Who Do You Think You Are' had a quick look for him a few years ago but they couldn't find anything interesting enough to do a full programme.

    So anyway, if you didn't watch it (it's still on ITV X) the local press did a few articles about the findings.


    JOHNNY Vegas says he felt an ‘enormous sense of pride’ after confirming his strong St Helens roots on ITV’s DNA Journey.

    Light entertainment and so on but if this particular episode was typical of the series then it doesn't really do what it says on the tin. It looks as though they'd just used conventional 'paper trail' records and it had nothing to do with DNA research. Oh well.


    A pathetically long memory

    By Alan,

    I feel ashamed of my own pettiness. I actually cheered when I heard the Challenge Cup Round result of Featherstone 18 Halifax 22 this weekend. Why the pleasure? Well I cannot ever forget Featherstone knocking Saints out of the cup twice in early rounds in the 1950s at Post Office Road. A family friend took me to both games and even now,nearly 70 years later the disappointment lingers

    By Alan,

    What a great game on telly last night as the Froggy Dragons beat Wigan and what a great result for the game in France
