Airdate: Miriam Margolyes: Impossibly Australian

Miriam travels to Perth, Byron Bay & Broken Hill, to meet communities that belong to specific communities.

Following a recent heart operation in London, Miriam is worried about what the future holds.

So, ignoring everyone’s advice to “slow down”, she returns to Australia for a new series, Miriam Margolyes: Impossibly Australian.

Across the three-part series, she embarks on a personal mission, travelling to Perth, Byron Bay and Broken Hill, meeting communities that are facing change and who can teach her how to adapt to whatever the future holds.

Miriam begins her journey in Perth in search of both her own identity and has an emotional meeting with Fremantle locals Tony and Jim, part of Australia’s Stolen Generation.

She then travels to Byron Bay, where individualism and influencers thrive. Here she meets hippies, learns about Byron’s homelessness crisis and even gets her “yoni” steamed.

Finally, she heads into the outback mining town of Broken Hill, where people are reinventing themselves, carving out new paths against all odds.
