Duration: 1 hour

Actor Nigel Havers is usually cast in upper class roles, but his roots turn out to be very different. Following his mother's line, Nigel travels to rural Cornwall to discover a tale of illegitimacy worthy of a period drama. On his father's side Nigel finds himself in Colchester as he discovers a tale of the Victorian equivalent of an Essex cab driver made good, who ends up losing everything.
