Heir Hunters

Series 1 from May 1st 1700 (excluding Bank Holiday Monday)

Heir Hunters focuses on attempts to find missing or unknown heirs, entitled to deceased people's estates before the British Treasury lawfully collects the money.

The show follows the work of Probate researchers from a number of different firms to show how the results of time-consuming research turned out.

In each programme of the first two series, three unclaimed estates from Bona Vacantia are mentioned in the hope of information being given by a viewer which could help find an heir or heirs. One of these mentioned in the first series resulted in information that led to some heirs being found for an estate.

Nadia Sawalha presented series 1 with subsequent series being narrated by Lisa Faulkner.
