Go Back Where You Came From Season 2

Welcome back to the controversial documentary series from SBS that takes a group of prominent Australians from diverse backgrounds and opinions in order to draw them into the refugee and asylum seeker debate in our country. The participants of season 2 include Angry Anderson (rock music legend & activist), Allan Asher (former Commonwealth Ombudsman), Imogen Bailey (Model and Animal Rights Activist), Catherine Deveny (Writer & Comedian), Peter Reith (former Minister of Defence) and Michael Smith (former radio Shock Jock).

Unlike the previous series, Season 2 takes these outspoken individuals to some of the most dangerous places on the planet where many of these refugees risk their lives to reach Australia. These places include Mogadishu (Somalia), Kabul (Afghanistan), Jakarta (Indonesia) and Christmas Island (Australia) as they walk in the shoes of these refugees. As they literally get their hands dirty, the participants of this series engage in fierce debates about these people that is quite fascinating to watch and will really make you question your own opinions on the debate.

As this three-part series progresses, the verbal altercations between the heavily opinionated individuals definitely reaches boiling point such as the strong view points of Angry Anderson and Michael Smith who have quite the anti-stance on refugees. Although it's almost a 50/50 split in opinions, they are split into two teams to experience the lives and stories of these desperate people which will pull at your emotional heartstrings. As a result, they need to work together as there are real-world dangers in the countries that they visit. It doesn't help that a group of American Soldiers recently burnt the Koran in Afghanistan.

The most memorable aspect of season 2 is seeing former radio Shock Jock Michael Smith almost offer his heart and soul to the children he encounters but ironically he continues with his staunch opinions on the refugee and asylum debate. As Peter Reith experiences life in Kabul or Imogen Bailey talking to the children Mogadishu, this series is almost edge of your seat TV that is not only controversial but will shake you to your core. Whether you're a for or against refugees, this is one documentary that should not be missed.

Highly Recommended!
