In ten half hour episodes ten eminent Australians amusingly, movingly and provocatively give their thoughts on what it means to be “As Australian As”. For Peter Fitzsimons the answer is aviation pioneer Charles Kingsford Smith, for Cathy Freeman it’s her mum, for Caroline O’Connor the Sydney Opera House and for George Negus, it’s football. Medical researcher and former Australian of the Year Fiona Stanley takes us into the remote heart of Western Australia, while actors John Wood and Bojana Novakovic, fashion designer Alex Perry, writer Anne Summers and musician Jon Stevens give us their always entertaining and often surprising responses.
