Our Lives – 11 October 2021 – BBC One

Finding My Family – Series 5 – The story of Leah, a young woman from Manchester who made the news in 1994 when she was abandoned as a newborn baby in a hospital toilet. Now, with the help of her filmmaker cousin, she is determined to search for answers.

It has been 26 years since Leah was discovered, just a few hours old, on top of a toilet cistern. No-one knows how she got there, and despite an extensive police investigation, her birth mother has never been traced. Now Leah is a mother herself, and she is more determined than ever to find out what happened. Her adoptive cousin Carla thinks online DNA
databases could hold clues, so Leah takes a test while Carla begins to document the journey.

Filmed over three years, it’s an emotional journey that uncovers painful truths and takes the cousins hundreds of miles from home. Will they solve this 26-year-old mystery, and will searching for her birth family finally give Leah the closure she needs?
