This article examines my work as a historical consultant on the television programme Who Do You Think You Are? It reveals my motivations for undertaking consultancy work, some of the ways in which social history is presented in the programme and the impact it can have on its audience. In response to the lack of scholarship on audience response to television history programmes it explores both the production and consumption of Who Do You Think You Are? and reveals the reactions of one group of Australian family historians to this phenomenally successful international series.
