11,000 people from Sri Lanka were put up for adoption in Europe over the course of several decades.

In this two-part documentary, four people return to Sri Lanka in order to find their biological parents. Among the people include Rebecca, who is making her third journey to Sri Lanka to find her mother; and Ria, who while having plenty of information about her mother, is told that she wanted no contact with her.

Searching for Mum: Sri Lanka is on BBC Two at 21.00.
