Summary In this world first TV event, Go Back To Where You Came From follows six ordinary Australians - Raye, Darren, Gleny, Adam, Roderick and Raquel - who hold very different perspectives about refugees and asylum seekers. The six participants agree to challenge their preconceived notions by embarking on a confronting 25 day journey. Tracing in reverse the journeys that refugees have taken to reach Australia, they will travel to some of the most dangerous and desperate corners of the world.Their journey begins in Sydney where the participants are deprived of their wallets, phones and passports, and have no idea about what is in store for them during the weeks ahead.Along the way they learn about the reality of life for refugees who now call Australia home, travel to Darwin and board a refugee boat and are rescued mid-ocean, experience immigration raids in Malaysia, witness sheer desperation in Kenyan refugee camps and visit slums in Jordan, before ultimately making it to the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Iraq, protected by UN Peacekeepers and the US military.For some of the Australians it's their first time abroad. For all of them, it's an epic journey and the most challenging experience of their lives. (Commissioned by SBS) (Documentary Series) (Part 1 of 3) CC
