British pubcaster BBC2 has commissioned a new three-part social history series from London- and Ireland-based prodco Blink Films, part of Tin Roof Media.

Unforgotten (working title; 3 x 60 minutes), hosted by television presenter Anita Rani (pictured), explores the experiences of two people caught up together in a major event in modern history — such as war, a natural disaster or terror attack — who have since become separated.

The series watches the individuals follow a series of clues, from newspaper cuttings to video archive, personal records and advice from relevant experts and historians, to find the person that helped them through the experience.

“This promises to be a brilliantly moving and illuminating social history format, taking us into the moments that have made our modern world, revealing the impact of chance encounters that radically change lives,” BBC2 controller Patrick Holland said in a statement.

Unforgotten (w/t) is executive produced by Justine Kershaw and commissioned by Simon Young for BBC2. The format and finished program will be distributed by All3Media International.
