Look Up Tonight with the Orange County Astronomers
Episode 17 contains:
The May 2004 presentation by Charlotte Herschel-Farquharson , Great-great-great-Grandaughter of Sir William Herschel (who discovered the planet Uranus).

This presentation features the history of the Herschel family and highlights the extraordinary achievement of the family over the past 300 years! Interestingly enough it seems that these successful genes were passed down the family line from William to his son John, onto another who discovered fingerprinting, then to another who created the silver bromide process for permanently fixing photographs with his friend Fox Talbot.
note: This is the complete presentation (1 hour 19 minutes). The cable show version contained highlights only.
