Hi there,

I work for Wall to Wall Television, the makers of ITV’s ‘Long Lost Family’. We’re making a new BBC One series that may be of interest to you, so I hope you don’t mind me responding to your post.

The series is called The Gift and it will follow the stories of people wanting to track down someone important from their past in order to say sorry or thank you to them. We have a team of search experts, mediators and psychologists who will trace estranged family members or total strangers and support both parties as they meet to say that all important thank you or sorry.

If this seems relevant to you and your search, and you think we might be able to help you, please get in touch for more information.

Tel: 020 7424 7703.

Thank you,

The Gift

although we may be far apart
and still rifts tear and rip our heart,
there will always be somewhere its true
deep in my heart where i love you.
we have one life
dont try in vain
to mend the part
with sorrow and shame
things go wrong
sometimes we can not right
if we got back together
we would only fight.
i will look back and see the cause
some will be mine
some will be yours
but dont be trapped
by those who might
make money by going around
starting the fight.

take care be wise and live your life
try to limit your pain and strife
dont fall into any traps
i am sorry for all of my mishaps
i may not be the one you seek
but there are simularities
and so i speak

i send you love
i send you prayers
wish me luck with mine
i will wish luck
for yours
and theirs

Dear Barbara,

I am developing a new TV series called Lost and Found with a production company called Tiger Aspect.

We are looking for stories similar to your own. The aim is to make six, hour-long observational-documentaries looking at the journey people go on (emotional, psychological, even geographical) to track down someone they feel is a missing link in their lives.

It would be an absolute privilege to follow you on your journey as you look for your Daughter. Do you think it would be something youd be interested in working with us on?

Give me a buzz on 020 7434 6741, or drop me a line at and we can have a proper chat about it.

With very best wishes,
