Slavery in Marple

After the rant, here, about Griff Rhys Jones comes another history programme of a comedian on a journey, this time it's "Who do you think you are?" which my observant FiL, Eamon Curran, tells me was about David Mitchell, the comedian.

"His ancestor Rev John Forbes Of Sleat, Isle of Skye was instumental in rescuing young girls from the Walmsley woolen mills in MARPLE and a Dr Hibbert certified the death of one girl who died of typhus. Check out lots of information."

Will watch it later and comment further.
