Scott Cam, Casey Donovan, and more will each go on a journey to discover their ancestry, in Who Do You Think You Are?. The new season premieres on SBS on Tuesday 30 April at 7.30pm.

2019 marks the 10th anniversary of the celebrated genealogy series and this season’s batch of high-profile Australians will trace their family history through global archives to piece together their family trees. Through these journeys, a rare insight into their lives behind the cameras.

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.
