this is  unusual  - it's on Channel 5,  Tuesday at 8pm - the programme invited me to take part and so I did -but filming it was quite hard - and then after a time, just as the big brother contestants  will tell  you,  I  really did forget the camera was there - I had a lot of gin in the evenings though - and what's  more I found me a cousin !   anyway I wrote this which explains it

normal jocular service of wry veering on bitter sweet observations of the shallow world of showbiz to be resumed I hope...

See Helen Lederer in War Hero in my Family,
Channel 5, Tuesday 15th May, 8pm

'Helen not only found  her grandfather  to have been a hero she found a cousin who survived  Auschwitz and is reunited with him.'
