Who Do You Think You Are? Australia is a candid one hour retrospective special which features 40 of Australia’s most loved celebrities.

The program brings together the best moments of this award winning genealogical series combined with revealing insights on what it was like to take part in the show from Adam Hills, Magda Szubanski, Adam Goodes, Richard Roxburgh, Kerry O’Brien, Tina Arena, Maggie Beer and Vince Colosimo.

"Interestingly I think the program really impacted on my coming out actually," Magda Szubanski revealed upon reflecting back on her experience on the program. 

"It gave everything comprehension for me," says Tina Arena of her WDYTYA experience. "And that for me doesn't have a price."

"It's been healing, and what a special, special thing that is," says Rebecca Gibney. 

"Understanding the richness of our past, individually and collectively is a great gift," says award-winning journalist and former ABC presenter Kerry O'Brien. "And i think that's what Who Do You Think You Are has done,"
