Finding Your Roots

"Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates Jr." is a PBS series akin to Who Do You Think You Are? with what for me is a more interesting guest list.

Starting on Sunday, 25 March "the 10-part series hosted by Henry L. Gates Jr., will explore the genealogy and genetics of famous Americans. Featured in the first, double, episode are Harry Connick, Jr., Branford Marsalis, Cory Booker and John Lewis.

Others featured in the series are Kevin Bacon, Robert Downey Jr., Samuel L. Jackson, John Legend, Condoleezza Rice, Martha Stewart, Wanda Sykes, Barbara Walters and Rick Warren."

Check for the station and time (8 pm Eastern) in your area. Many PBS programs are widely available online after broadcast at http://video.pbs.org/
