Tony Robinson Down Under: Race to the End of the World
Race to the End of the World
Season 1  |  Episode 1  |  SBS  |  August 23, 2018

From the first sighting by a wayward buccaneer in 1688, all the way through to the Sydney Olympics, Australia has been influenced by many cultures. Now Tony Robinson brings his distinctive passion for storytelling and discovery to reveal some astonishing quirks of history on the island continent. The characters who left their fingerprints on Australia's formative years were predominantly English and Irish. Nonetheless. Tony will also reveal some surprising and controversial stories of the settlers and un-settlers from other countries (Austria, France, Israel, Germany and more): the rebels, ratbags and revolutionaries who in some small way contributed to the birth of a nation. Alternative title: Tony Robinson Explores Australia.
