Wildlife presenter Liz Bonnin describes herself as “a mongrel”: the result of her parents’ lineages on the Caribbean islands of Trinidad and Martinique.

In Trinidad, she goes in search of the first of her maternal ancestors to arrive on the island from India. Liz then heads to Martinique where her paternal ancestors are said to have owned plantations… and slaves.
