In Series 4 of the critically acclaimed documentary series Who Do You Think You Are? six prominent Australians: comedian Shaun Micallef; actors Vince Colosimo, Melissa George and John Wood; television journalist Kerry O'Brien and AFL footballer Michael O'Loughlin, go in search of their ancestors. Their decision to play detective and find the definitive answer to where they come from offers the Who Do You Think You Are? audience inspiring and entertaining accounts of family history and an opportunity to get to know the subjects of each episode in a different way. While each participant's Who Do You Think You Are? experience is different, what all six have in common is their realisation that their personal stories are the story of Australia and the countries where their families once lived.
The Who Do You Think You Are? study guide has been written for secondary students at all year levels. It provides information and suggestions for learning activities in Australian History, Australian Studies, English, The Humanities – Geography and History, Media and cross-curriculum projects exploring the concepts of identity, belonging, family, inheritance and generational change.
