Daily Mercury - - TODAY'S TELEVISION -

Co­me­dian Michael Hing (The Feed) grew tired of peo­ple ask­ing him, “Where are you from?” His fam­ily mi­grated to Aus­tralia from China more than 100 years ago, so it was an an­noy­ing ques­tion that was hard to an­swer. This thought­ful and play­ful se­ries ex­plores how mi­grant fam­i­lies in re­gional ar­eas deal with the per­va­sive ques­tion as Hing gets to know the com­mu­nity and hears their sto­ries. Tonight, he is in Wool­go­olga, NSW, which has a pop­u­la­tion of 4500 peo­ple. It is home to the coun­try’s largest re­gional set­tle­ment of Sikhs and the com­mu­nity was founded by mi­grant ba­nana farm­ers from In­dia be­fore Fed­er­a­tion.
