Thank you for your interest in our ITV programme about family separation and reunion. The programme will follow the stories of people who have, for one reason or another, experienced long term separation from members of their family and are seeking to be reunited with them.

The programme hopes to help people who are struggling to find enough information to move closer to a reunion. The programme will aim to track down lost relatives and follow the stories from the search through to the reunion.
