Who Do You Think You Are: Sir Ian McKellen
In today's episode of BBC Who Do You Think You Are? Dr Caroline Radcliffe will be telling the actor Sir Ian McKellen about his Victorian ancestor.
In the programme: "As the 'last of the McKellens', Sir Ian admits to a degree of melancholy as he delves into his family history. But the results pay off richly for one of Britain's greatest actors and civil rights champions. Ian's journey uncovers a theatrical ancestor, a Victorian political activist and a link to an ancient druidical landmark in the Lake District."
