Who Do You Think You Are? - Series 6 - Rory Bremner


Series in which celebrities trace their ancestry. Rory Bremner didn't know his father very well. He was an older father, who was a little distant and died when Rory was 18 years old. Rory knew he was an infantry officer in the Second World War, but thought he saw little action. At his brother's house, Rory discovers some of his father's wartime letters, in which he talks about a battle for the Dutch city of 's-Hertogenbosch. Rory travels to Holland where meets a man who was with his father during the battle. Moving on to Germany, Rory learns about the part his father played in the post-war reconstruction and discovers how he managed to find time to get to know the locals.
