New con­cept for refugee de­bate

Balonne Beacon - - LIFE -

IN SBS’s most am­bi­tious tele­vi­sion event to date, Go Back To Where You Came From Live will take the pulse of the evolv­ing global refugee cri­sis in real time. The refugee cri­sis con­tin­ues to be the world’s great­est hu­man­i­tar­ian dis­as­ter with 68.5 mil­lion dis­placed per­sons world­wide. In 2018, Aus­tralia’s poli­cies around refugees con­tinue to po­larise and the refugee and asy­lum seeker de­bate is still one of the most di­vi­sive. Over three nights, view­ers will fol­low events live from con­flict hotspots and front­lines across mul­ti­ple con­ti­nents. Jour­nal­ists Ray Martin (pic­tured) and Jan­ice Pe­tersen will be sta­tioned in the stu­dio in Syd­ney, as the sto­ries un­fold through a mix of doc­u­men­tary el­e­ments and live crosses to par­tic­i­pants.
