A "must see" documentary. Boat people are not Muslim invaders, they are fleeing from a battlefield that has been created by the US and allies. They are ordinary people, who are totally dispossessed and would like to work and lead useful lives. Fascinated to watch Peter Reith and Angry Andersen having their eyes opened and being given a big fright! Very well done - an excellent documentary!

Are the series 2 'Go back to Where You Come From', subtitled to other Languages, such as Spanish? And if not, would the producers consider doing this as these films are of global relevance?. A magnificent example of responsible Media, sadly, a not so common occurrence. Would like to buy for my relatives & friends in South America. Thank you.

The most relevant and important viewing I have ever seen. Fellow human beings who could be us if it wasn!t for the luck of being born in Australia...What would we do it it was a member of our family marooned in some devastating war zone...individually, we have to have a concience and be willing to find some way to help.

I was shaking my head for so much of this series. Not because I didn't understand what I was watching, but because I did! I was shocked and horrified that people live the way they do, take the risks they do for the very thing I take for granted every day. I also used to have the opinion that illegal immigration and more specifically detention centres would not be the issue they are if the government would employ more people and process the detainees quicker, I now see that this was an ignorant way of thinking.
