2019 marks the 10th anniversary of the Australian edition of the celebrated genealogy series “Who Do You Think You Are?“, and after what seems forever, the long wait for the Season 10 is almost over.
As always, this season’s batch of high-profile Australians will trace their family history through global archives to piece together their family trees, and through these journeys you get a rare insight into their lives behind the camera.
So which celebrities go on a journey to discover their ancestry, in Who Do You Think You Are? Australia this year?
Scott Cam – Australian TV personality
Jennifer Byrne – journalist, TV presenter and former book publisher
Marta Dusseldorp – stage, film and theatre actress
Dr Karl Kruszelnicki – author and science commentator on radio and TV
Casey Donovan – singer, songwriter, actress and author
Kurt Fearnley – paralympian
Kerri-Anne Kennerley – Australian TV personality
Rodger Corser – actor
From Shanghai to Ukraine, and beyond, these eight Australians travel to parts of the world they’ve never been to in an attempt to uncover the histories that are both personal and universal. While one of the cast is shocked to discover they directly descend from English Kings, another traces lost Italian roots. One learns about heroic wartime adventures and another gets insights into their Indigenous history.
Old wounds are healed, fighting spirits centuries old are uncovered and family secrets never explained are finally understood in this emotional and intimate new series of Who Do You Think You Are?
