Hannah Gadsby's OZ
Season 1  |  Episode 1  |  ABC  |  March 11, 2014

If our great artworks are to be believed, the average Aussie is a bloke in a hat who is hell bent on conquering our gum tree-infested landscape singlehandedly. Why has this mono-vision of Australia persisted for so long? Surely there is more to us than our most famous works suggest? Australian stand-up comedian Hannah Gadsby is a closet art scholar. Over three weeks, armed only with her rapier wit and a desire to pick beneath the paint, she will travel across the continent on a mission to debunk the myths of the Australian identity as defined by our art canon.
