Duration: 1 hour

Gregg Wallace sets out to solve a long-standing family mystery: what happened to his great-grandfather, Henry Roland Springett, who abandoned his wife and children, including Gregg's grandfather, and was thought to have deserted the Navy? Gregg turns detective and follows the clues that enable him to piece together Henry's life. Gregg uncovers a tale of infidelity, heartbreaking tragedy and cruel fate.

Gregg is also given an intriguingly formal portrait of his great-great-grandmother. On the trail of her story, Gregg is shocked to discover the origin of the portrait and to find out where she ended her days. The tales of catastrophe and misfortune that he uncovers leave Gregg reeling emotionally.
