Who Do You Think You Are? season 11 premieres on SBS on Tuesday 19 May at 7:30pm.
“I’m so glad I got to know my ancestors. For those that did it really tough. I look at their lives and think I don’t think I would have coped. I’ve also realised how lucky I am, I found my place when it comes to family and I feel incredibly grateful for that because not everybody finds that.” Lisa Wilkinson
“Two beautiful love stories. One six generations ago. And another back through further generations yet love is the through line. I feel incredibly grateful that I have that to look back on. I come from love stories. Brings up such deep emotion.” Cameron Daddo
“I feel even closer to my dad now because I know so much more about him. I realise now how lucky I am to have the family I have. Family is the one thing I’m totally sure of.” Bert Newton
Always emotional and intimate, as the participants piece together the puzzle of their family tree, we’re given a rare insight into their lives away from the camera, and the personal stories reveal a bigger picture of Australia’s diverse national identity.
As always, there will be tears, laughter, shocking discoveries, emotional revelations and intriguing surprises. One of the cast discovers the father they never knew was a true patriot who devoted his life to his country, while another traces lost German roots. One learns about heroic wartime adventures and another gets insights into their Indigenous history as these renowned Australians travel the world to explore their family trees and delve back centuries into their ancestry.
