The last time I cried during prime-time on ITV, Argentinian goalkeeper Carlos Roa had just saved a penalty from David Batty and England's football team were heading back home from Saint-Etienne. Now, I'm not saying that those soapy montages on The X Factor, or whatever, never moved me, but, well, actually, that's exactly what I'm saying. This third series of Long Lost Family had me in puddles. Just like a shanked hoof by an English midfielder.

Essentially, it's the last five minutes of Surprise, Surprise without Bob Carolgees and Cilla's song.

A lesson in Big Society schooling, if you like.

The biggest surprise in Long Lost Family is that it's not been made before. Ancestry, investigation, lost relatives: it is, surely, a match made in wall-to-wall heaven. After all, these are the people who brought us Who Do You Think You Are?. This was but a moodboard away.
