Go Back to Where You Came From

After the success of the first season of Go Back to Where You Came From, in which six ordinary Australians walked in the shoes of asylum seekers, I was pretty sceptical about a second season which uses celebrities. I have been proven wrong. The second season, which has aired over the last three nights, was just as insightful as the first. It was also, in some ways, more moving, as the opinions of the six celebrities were so well-known before they started their journeys. Watching some of them change their minds was quite extraordinary.
