The series follows Stacey as she helps to answer people's burning questions about their family, health or ancestry with a visit to a DNA testing clinic.

Working with one of the UK's leading geneticists, Professor Turi King, as well as top genealogists, social workers and doctors, they'll use the advances in DNA technology to help reveal lost heritage, track down missing relatives and detect debilitating diseases before it's too late.
