FIRST ACROSS AUSTRALIA
SBS ONE, 8.35pm
You’re nobody in the explorer world until someone follows in your footsteps for a TV documentary 150- odd years after the fact. So welcome to the club, Robert O’Hara Burke! In this two- part documentary, another Irishman, Dermot Somers, recreates Burke’s fateful and badly prepared journey into the Australian unknown. A totally engrossing history lesson.
