Hugh was lucky that the land of his forebares have a tradition of oral narrative, unlike our British button-lipped Victorian society who never talked about anything!
I particularily enjoyed the end of the show, the look on Hugh’s face when his Dutch Kamerling relative produced that enelope of wonderful photo’s!
My only complaint- I would have liked them to try and find Hugh’s mystery Philips ancestor- perhaps they did but were unable to, but wouldn’t it make a great follow-up show to try!
