SBS secures TV giants for new season of Who Do You Think You Are?

• They will trace their family history through global archives to learn more about their ancestors’ pasts

Eight of Australia’s most popular personalities will go on a journey to discover who they really are in series 10 of Who Do You Think You Are? premiering on SBS on Tuesday 30 April, at 7.30pm.

Marta Dusseldorp, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki, Jennifer Byrne and Kerri-Anne Kennerley join the cast of the celebrated genealogy series, which investigates the ancestry of prominent Australians. The all-new eight-part series also features Scott Cam, Casey Donovan, Kurt Fearnley and Rodger Corser.

They will trace their family history through global archives to learn more about their ancestors’ pasts, and piece together their family trees. Through these journeys, a rare insight into their lives behind the cameras emerges.

SBS director of TV and online content Marshall Heald said: “This year marks over 70 episodes and the landmark tenth series of one of Australia’s most loved series. Who Do You Think You Are? has uncovered eye-opening and emotional revelations about some of Australia’s most iconic personalities and this season is no exception. The stories reflect the rich diversity of Australia and demonstrate how we have evolved into the multicultural nation we are today.”

From Shanghai to Ukraine, and beyond, these eight Australians travel to parts of the world they’ve never been to in an attempt to uncover the histories that are both personal and universal. While one of the cast is shocked to discover they directly descend from English kings, another traces lost Italian roots. One learns about heroic wartime adventures and another gets insights into their Indigenous history.

Old wounds are healed, fighting spirits centuries old are uncovered and family secrets never explained are finally understood in this emotional new series of Who Do You Think You Are?

Who Do You Think You Are? is produced by Warner Bros International Television Production Australia for SBS.
