SBS ONE, 8.30pm

The cir­cum­stances in this pro­gram are so bizarre that at times you could be for­given for for­get­ting that you are ac­tu­ally watch­ing a doc­u­men­tary. Ac­tor and TV pre­sen­ter Anna Choy ( Be­yond Tomorrow) goes on a con­fronting jour­ney as she un­cov­ers and tries to un­der­stand a sub­cul­ture who will go to ex­tremes with surgery in their mis­sion to be­come more “Aussie- look­ing”. Pro­ce­dures in­clude dou­ble eye­lid surgery, fa­cial con­tour­ing, nose jobs, skin whiten­ing and calf re­duc­tions. In a coun­try that prides it­self on be­ing mul­ti­cul­tural, has some­thing gone hor­ri­bly wrong or is so­ci­ety’s idea of beauty to blame?
