Last night more than half a million Australians tuned in to the incredible SBS program Go Back to Where You Came From. Compared to the high ratings of shows like Australia’s Got Talent and MasterChef this may not seem like much, but boy, sometimes things like numbers don’t matter when you’ve got such a powerful piece of television on your hands. The three-part documentary, which continues tonight and tomorrow, takes six ordinary Australians with varying opinions on the refugee situation on a journey that opens their eyes to the harsh reality faced by refugees every day. What they witness will stay with them forever: disease, poverty, death and more. The show has remained a top trending topic on Twitter (with the hashtag #gobacksbs), and in case you missed the first episode you can still watch parts two and three, which will take some of the Aussies to Malaysia and Jordan. If you watched Go Back to Where You Came From, give us your thoughts in the comments.
Go Back to Where You Came From continues tonight on SBS at 8:30 p.m.
