It features appearances from her husband Hugh Jackman, Jerry Seinfeld, Sigrid Thornton, Nicole Kidman, Simone Buchanan, John Clarke, Peter Phelps, Kerry Armstrong and Tim Costello, all paying tribute to this very special Australian.
Together with performances from Kate Ceberano, Tom Burlinson and Colin Hay, it promises to be captivating viewing.
Host Eddie McGuire will surprise Deborra- Lee with heartfelt reunions, spontaneous revelations and stories from friends and family from around the world.
“This Is Your Life has been one of the most enjoyable and rewarding hosting jobs I’ve ever had,” McGuire said.
“The warmth of the studio audience and the moving stories of our guests provide inspiration and lessons in never giving up, in a way that only television can.”
At 70 minutes, this pushes the replay of the Oscars to a 9:40pm start (it has a live broadcast beginning at midday).
This is Your Life is expected to appear as a series of specials this year.
