Screening over three consecutive nights, this three-part series follows six ordinary Australians who agree to challenge their preconceived notions about refugees and asylum seekers, and embark on a confronting 25 day journey. Tracing in reverse the journeys that refugees have taken to reach Australia, they will travel to some of the most dangerous and desperate corners of the world. For all of them, it's an epic journey and the most challenging experience of their lives.
In this episode, the refugee experiment gets bolder still. The Australians experience two countries torn apart by war. With ever-present danger, their differences become more pronounced. In Afghanistan, Reith, Deveny and Anderson arrive as riots break out across the country. Tension is high as the Australians are confronted with a stark reminder of why so many Afghanis desperately want to escape their country. They meet victims of violence, and visit makeshift camps for displaced Afghanis.
In the second instalment of the multi award-winning documentary series, Go Back to Where You Came From, six prominent Australians risk their lives to experience the reality of refugee life, as they embark on an extraordinary and confronting three week journey. They bring a wealth of experience to the table, but nothing can prepare them for the twists and turns in store.
The boats may have stopped, but the debate has not. The ground-breaking and multi award-winning SBS documentary series Go Back To Where You Came From returns after three years to once again provoke national debate about how Australia responds to refugees and asylum seekers.
Following a reverse refugee journey, one group visits an unofficial camp housing many of the 140,000 ethnic minority who fled their homes two years earlier. The series builds to a dramatic conclusion as the other group visits two of the most dangerous places on Earth and comes under fire on the Syrian frontlines.
