Guests: Marta Dusseldorp, Jennifer Byrne, Kerri-Anne, Dr Karl Kruszelnick, Scott Cam & Casey Donovan.
Marta Dusseldorp, Jennifer Byrne, Kerri-Anne Kennerley and Dr Karl Kruszelnicki have been announced as appearing in the 10th season of Who Do You Think You Are? on SBS.
They join previously-announced participants Kurt Fearnley, Scott Cam, Casey Donovan and Rodger Corser.
The popular genealogy series returns to Tuesdays at the end of April.
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”.
“Coming on this journey has really opened my eyes and my heart and it’s lifted a weight. It makes me feel like I belong,” said Casey Donovan.
“I’m just a knockabout chippie… it would be bloody nice if we found some royalty!” said Scott Cam.
“I feel a lot more anchored now that I know about my ancestors and I can now appreciate why my parents were the way they were,” added Dr Karl Kruszelnicki.
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 and intimate 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.
