Title : Go Back To Where You Came From
Duration : 10 x 60 min
Broadcaster : SBS
The Go Back franchise documents the story of six ordinary Australians agreeing to challenge their preconceived notions about refugees and asylum seekers by embarking on a confronting 25-day journey. Tracing in reverse the journeys that refugees have taken to reach Australia, they travel to some of the most dangerous and desperate corners of the world, with no idea what is in store for them along the way.
Deprived of their wallets, phones and passports, they board a leaky refugee boat, are rescued mid-ocean, experience immigration raids, live in refugee camps and visit slums and the world’s newest city. For some of them it’s their first time abroad. For all of them, it’s an epic journey and the most challenging experience of their lives.
