Dumb, Drunk And Racist

Season 1  |  Episode 1  |  ABC2  |  June 20, 2012

Australians get a bad rap overseas, and our stocks seem especially low in India. In fact, a sizeable chunk of India's 1.2 billion people think Aussies are dumb, drunk and racist. But doesn't every country have its negative stereotypes? In this six-part factual series, journalist Joe Hildebrand takes four Indians on a road-trip around Australia to examine our worst stereotypes - are we really beer-swilling, racist bogans, or are we simply misunderstood?
