With unprecedented access, this remarkable episode of Long Lost Family follows the “War Detectives” at the Ministry of Defence, who are tasked with identifying the remains of British soldiers found in archaeological digs or farmers’ fields worldwide.

Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell are there every step of the way as extensive research and DNA testing helps piece together the life of each soldier, as their families are informed and as our fallen heroes are finally honoured with the military burial they deserve.
