Take four strangers, test their DNA and then, based on the results, take them on a quest to discover exactly where they come from and the history that’s shaped who they are. This is The History Channel’s brand new genealogy special, Your People My People. Your People My People is a journey of discovery and enlightenment as we use science to reveal our history. Four ordinary South Africans travel to places and spaces in history and participate in activities based on their genepool. From an emotional reenactment of the Battle of Blood River, to spending a sun-beaten day being indentured labourers, they learn as much about themselves as they do each other. And in the end, they inspire the viewer to embark on their own journey of self-discovery.

trees from his field uprooted a large stone covered with mysterious runes. Now known as the Kensington Rune Stone, it details a journey of land acquisition and murder in the year 1362. Thought by some to be a hoax, new evidence suggests it could be real, and a clue that the Knights Templar discovered America 100 years before Columbus, perhaps bringing with them history’s greatest treasure…The Holy Grail.
