From the BBC synopsis:
“A new TV series starts on Friday at 9pm on BBC 2, in which Gerry Robinson helps two families torn over what to write in their wills.
Lesley wants to leave half the family home to charity, but husband David wants all of it to be left to his two sons by a previous marriage. Meanwhile, army major Tom is bound for Baghdad, and urgently needs to make a will that includes his two stepdaughters. But his new wife Kiera is against the principle of inheritance and would rather leave everything they jointly own to charity.
Sir Gerry is assisted by top lawyer Sue Medder, who sets out the legal options in each case, and writes the final wills. And Sir Gerry gets all the family involved in the debate, because keeping problems secret is no way to solve them.
Deciding who gets what in a will can be one of the toughest choices anyone can have to make. But making no decisions at all and dying without a will can cause rifts that tear families apart.”
