Uncovering hidden history around every corner.
In this series Sir Tony Robinson brings his inquisitive storytelling approach to Australia and New Zealand’s diverse suburbs and towns. His mission is to uncover the hidden history that lies behind, below and above the places we walk every day.
In each episode we find a different postcode laden with stories. They’re all established walks that tourists and locals frequently do, but Tony digs deeper to draw out the drama of the past. He’ll roam through the streets and laneways; divulging the tales of crimes, recounting acts of bravery, notable characters and showdowns that have shaped the area.
In 2013 the series won an ASTRA Award for the Most Outstanding Lifestyle Program.
First broadcast 10 September 2012.
