John Bishop was once a pharmaceuticals sales director, but changed career to become a stand-up comedian - after he split up with his wife (who he's now back with, as far as we're aware). As he traces his family tree, he is surprised to discover he is not the only one in his family to have ended up on the stage - although what his great-great-grandfather Charles Bishop did gives him something to think about. He also explores what happened to his other great-great-grandfather, who spent time as a prisoner-of-war in the Crimea. Concluding the series from October.
