Does anyone watch Heir Hunters? Mother in law was talking about it earlier. I watched the first series last year (or whenever it was) but couldn't get into when they did the next series.
It sounds like there have been a couple of good programs this week. I'll perhaps have a look if they are on iPlayer.

I have watched the program two or three times, and I like it!

I found the first series fascinating. I had no idea how involved these probate chasers are. The makers seemed to change the way they made the program, that and a different host I think. It just didn't grab me in the same way unfortunately.

M-in-law was saying they had a story about a Polish chap today and one of a bigamist yesterday - both were particularly interesting.

I'll see if I can download them from iplayer and save them to an external drive so I can watch them while away. Can't access iplayer in France :cry:

Some of their agents hog the computer terminals at the probate office in High Holborn, London(I go there about 3 times a year) and talk on their mobiles in spite of the notices, one was even drinking hot soup in the Search Room, which considering there are recently bereaved people arriving to have interviews re probate is pretty crass. Not my favourite species.

I did call them, but they said they were inundated with CV’s, and they were not hiring. Anyhow, I don’t think I would like to mix business with my hobby.
