"The BBC is to launch a Who Do You Think You Are? magazine off the back of the successful genealogy series of the same name.The show, which returns for its fourth series on BBC One on Thursday, has already been the subject of a live exhibition at London's Olympia in May this year. Previous guests on the TV show, including Colin Jackson, Ian Hislop and David Baddiel, attended the event and talked their experiences.The new 100-page full-colour magazine will be produced by BBC Magazines Bristol and launches on September 25 for a cost of £4.25. Each issue will include a DVD or CD with clips of the BBC show and archive material. A website to support the magazine goes live later this week. Genealogy website Ancestry.co.uk - which also sponsored the live show - will reportedly act as the data provider for the BBC website. Production company Wall to Wall, which produces the series, has also announced a second live show for May 2008. "
