Heir Hunter

HISTORY CHANNEL – Weeknights from Monday 3 January, 7.30pm

When someone dies you would expect that their worldly possessions would go to their nearest and dearest. But what if the deceased had no known relatives and there was no last will and testament? Normally their possessions would go to the Government; unless the “heir hunters” step in. Combining elements of fortune hunting, genealogy and ultimately life-changing moments we follow the probate research firms’ investigators as they race against the clock to track down long lost relatives and bring them the news, both good and bad.
