Professor Susan Golombok, Director of the Centre for Family Research, in conversation with Alex Graham, creator of Who Do You Think You Are? about her new book, We Are Family: What Really Matters for Parents and Children.

Our understanding of what makes a family has changed dramatically in recent decades due to advances in reproductive technologies accompanied by changing social attitudes. Today, families may have lesbian mothers, gay fathers, single parents by choice and transgender parents, and children may be born through egg donation, sperm donation, embryo donation and surrogacy.  Alex Graham, creator of the award-winning series Who Do You Think You Are? and executive producer of ITV’s Long Lost Family will be in conversation with Susan Golombok about her research on the impact of these new family forms on children and the resonances between their experience and the protagonists of Alex’s programmes.
