Journeys into the past...

(Photograph) - Journeys into the past begin with a family photograph such as these: Stephen Fry's grandparents Martin Neumann and Rosa Braun (near right), and Bend it Like Beckham director Gurinder Chadha's parents Bhajan and Balwant.

Who do You Think You Are?: discovering the heroes and villains in your family by Dan Waddell and Nick Barratt (Harper Collins pound;14.99) accompanies the current BBC2 series (Wednesdays at 9pm) which takes Fry, Chadha and others including Jane Horrocks and Jeremy Paxman back to their roots. The book supplies the tools you need to make the same genealogical journey, and uncovers the patterns of travel, migration, employment and other social factors you might encounter on the way.
