Summary *Coarse Language and Nudity*After a three-week road trip, the Indians' Australian odyssey is nearly at an end. But before they reveal their views on Australia, they take a look at our drinking culture...Australians drink more than just about any other country on earth; we also love our cricket. Joe introduces the Indians to a grand tradition - a beer at the cricket.The crew then embark on a club crawl in Surfers Paradise, and experience Aussie binge drinking culture up close. Binge drinking is one of the major health problems affecting young Australians and it's the police and hospital emergency departments that are on the frontline. Joe takes Amer and Mahima to St Vincent's, where Dr Gordian Fulde reveals that a single drunken punch can destroy a life.From the city, the Indians then head to the bush to experience a country pub. Wrapping up the drinking tour, Joe takes everyone to the Meandarra B&S Ball, a romantic rite of passage where alcohol plays a vital role.Finally, after meeting and experiencing many different parts of the Australian culture, Gurmeet, Radhika, Amer and Mahima deliver their verdict. How have their opinions changed? Do they still believe Australians are indeed dumb, drunk and racist?PRODUCTION DETAILS:6 x 30 minutes. Cordell Jigsaw Productions.
