SBS to screen the third season of Who Do You Think You Are?

SBS will air the third season of celebrity family tree show –  Who Do You Think You Are?  – later on this month. 

The announcement:

Premieres Sunday 28 November, 7.30pm, SBS ONE.

Who Do You Think You Are? returns for a third series as six more Australian celebrities trace their family tree, uncovering secrets and stories from the past.

Magda Szubanski, Rod Marsh, Tina Arena, Shane Bourne, Paul Mercurio and Georgie Parker take a journey through their ancestry in this fascinating chronicle of the social, ethnic and cultural evolution of Australia’s national identity. Travelling across the country and around the globe, their personal journeys are revealing, sometimes shocking and always emotional.

Series three features stories of adoption and abortion, murder and mafia, and business scams and bankruptcy. It celebrates war heroes and resistance workers, farmers and miners, and uncovers life’s horrors for destitute mothers and abandoned children.

Combining emotional and personal journeys with big-picture history, these inspiring and occasionally challenging stories remind us how Australians have come to be the people that we are today.
