When someone dies you would expect that their worldly possessions would go to their nearest and dearest. But if the deceased had no known relatives and there was no last will and testament, then it goes to the Government – unless, that is, the ‘heir hunters’ step in.
An observational documentary series, Heir Hunters follows probate research firms’ investigators as they race against the clock and the competition to track down long lost relatives to bring them the news, both good and bad. Combining elements of fortune hunting, genealogy and ultimately life-changing moments, there are different stories covered in each episode.
The Heir Hunters audience has increased considerably since the programme’s launch in 2007, growing by 48% since Series 1. It is now in its twelfth series.
A Flame TV production for BBC One
