So this has been bugging me for years - but I remember a show that aired in the UK in the 90s (it could be British, maybe BBC - it also may not be) about aliens trying to track down humans (who may also have been aliens taking refuge on earth).

    Hi, welcome to SF&F. Was this a live-action or animated show? What did the aliens look like? How did you (the audience) know they were aliens? How were they tracking people, detective-type methods or secret technology?

    Was it new in the 90s? Do you remember anything about main characters? Was it children or a show about adults aimed at children? Jul 23, 2023 at 0:51

    There's not a lot to go on here; perhaps you could have a look at the tips in this FAQ and edit in some more details that might help narrow it down.

If it is BBC and mid 1990's it is almost certainly Aliens In the Family. Which makes this question a duplicate as I have previously answered a question IDing this very show,

The story elements you describe are a very strong match for this show. Aliens in the Family is spot on for the timescale, matches being made/shown on bbc in the Uk and does heavily feature aliens disguised as humans taking refuge on earth, being hunted by other aliens.

Here is a link to an episode on Youtube

    The answer should stand on its own. How does it match?

  • :-D Part of the problem is that none of this is in the answer.

  • Just tagging scifi.stackexchange.com/questions/205124/… as the accepted answer that would be the duplicate if this one were accepted.

Possibly "Halfway Across the Galaxy and Turn Left", which aired on CITV in 1994 and 1996. It's an Australian show, and features a family of aliens who had to flee the authorities on planet Zyrgon and attempt to hide on earth, pretending to be humans.
