Lynne Cowley - A Very Private Detective
Lynne Cowley was adopted as a baby, and for 27 years had no idea who she was. There was no way of knowing. Then the law changed; secrecy surrounding adoption was lifted. Despite warnings about the risks of going back in time, she burrowed away in registers of births and marriages, telephone books, electoral rolls, parish records. Anywhere to track down her natural mother. Her detective work produced startling discoveries and a sting in the tale. Film cameramen PHIL LAW, PAUL KANWAR Film editor JOHN NASH
