Watch Who Do You Think You Are? S11E07 live on the web
Inspector George Gently and The Professionals star Martin Shaw is the latest celebrity to go in search of his roots, and he's particularly interested in finding out more about his paternal grandfather Edwin, who was rarely spoken about by his family.
The actor has only one photo of his ancestor, which shows him aged roughly 17 and wearing a military uniform.
By zooming in on the picture, Martin's brother was able to identify their grandfather's badge, which suggests he was in the Royal Marines.
Now, by meeting with a military historian, Martin tries to fill in the rest of the story, and in the process learns more about Edwin's role in defending Birmingham against German air assaults during the Second World War.
