    Default Who do you think you are: Jack Whitehall

    Fascinating, funny and (for him) horrific revelations about his ancestors. The first one I've seen where it doesn't end remotely nicely.

    Kate Winslett was on last night....the epitome of an annoying drama queen. Interesting story though...

    I will have a read of that later, my Mom retires in September, we are going to have a look back and see what we can price together, my Momís Grandad worked for The Peaky Blinders so should be very interesting.

    Never heard of him, Reg, what does he do?

    Saw the start of that one at a friends house, but we switched it off as it did not look very interesting.

    Peaky Blinders were Birmingham criminals who wore three holed razor blades sewn into the peaks of their caps so they could swipe opponents with them and cause cuts. Hence their name.

    Perrin is right about Cameron, on everything else he is wrong.
    Fork Me is a decent type, pity he's such a twat!

    There is a series on the BBC about them, very loosely based on what actually happened. They were mostly illegal gambling types, but ran a protection racket round Small Heath, the Garrison Pub used in the TV show is still there. My great grandad was a bookies runner for them, and my Nan had to alert them if the police were coming. I wish Iíd asked her more about it while she was alive.
