Episode One – Annie Lennox
Eurythmics singer and political activist Annie Lennox, whose grandmother’s father died when she was only three, knows little about this branch of the family. Annie’s episode uncovers an extraordinarily dark tale of tangled family relationships blighted by illegitimacy and poverty. On her journey, Annie also discovers the humiliation her unmarried great, great grandmother suffered before the Scottish church.
Tuesday, 3 September at 7.30pm on SBS ONE.
