In this documentary Alesha Dixon reflects on growing up without a father. The National Council for One Parent Families says about three million children today have experienced the trauma of their parents separating, and a million of them never see one of their parents again, usually the father. Many are conceived through donor insemination or one-night-stands and never learn the identity of their father at all. Yet knowing who their biological relatives are is not only important for emotional reasons, but also for medical and genetic purposes. Thankfully, some support is now being offered for individuals conceived through sperm donation to locate their biological father or half-siblings. (Aired BBC3, Tuesday 8 December 2009, 21:00)
