Greig Pickhaver is on a mission to discover the secrets of some of Australia's most iconic cities. Travelling to Fremantle, Fitzroy and Bondi, Pickhaver uncovers the hidden history and unsung residents who've helped shape these places into the cities they are today. In the trendy, latte lover's paradise of Fitzroy, Victoria, Pickhaver learns how a former slum where many European migrants made their home evolved into one of Melbourne's most desirable suburbs. Fitzroy was a hub for activism and the centre of the new call for Aboriginal rights in the 1970s, and once welcomed an unlikely and unscheduled visitor: Muhammad Ali.
