The show "Long Lost Family" is an hour long program that is documentary and reality. Each episode is a new story about long lost family members who long to be reunited. The reality is it cuts to the essence of relationship. In one episode an adult child was given up for adoption at around 18 months of age. He tells the interviewer that he understands his mother's reasons, but would be crushed if he were to find out she was and remains unhappy. A key element is the reunion occurring between the one searching for their family member and that family member. The moment of mutual recognition occurs near the end of each episode, but is a part of the whole episode not the sole reason for it. Plots include an adopted woman suspects that there are underlying circumstances surrounding her birth; her quest is to discover the nature of those circumstances. Another plot involves a mother searching and finding her son after several decades. Her family had urged her to give up the child for adoption when an infant.
