WHODOYOUTHINK YOU ARE?: MICHAEL CA­TON

Tues­day 7.30pm, SBS ONE If you didn’t al­ready have a soft spot for Aus­tralian ac­tor Michael Ca­ton, you will now.

The early death of his fa­ther meant large parts of his fam­ily his­tory re­mained un­known, un­til the

Who Do You Think You Are? team stepped in to delve into the past.

An emo­tional Ca­ton (pic­tured), to­gether with his two older sis­ters from Bris­bane, ex­am­ine the news­pa­per ar­ti­cles that re­veal their fa­ther, Sep­ti­mus, was killed in a tragic in­dus­trial ac­ci­dent.

De­spite learn­ing of the heart­break and trauma that his an­ces­tors ex­pe­ri­enced, Ca­ton dis­cov­ers he is proud of his new­found her­itage.

The jour­ney of dis­cov­ery into his past also in­tro­duces us to the first Ca­ton who came to Aus­tralia and their con­nec­tion to one of Aus­tralia’s most in­fa­mous out­laws.

This episode of this pop­u­lar se­ries on mul­ti­cul­tural broad­caster SBS makes for fas­ci­nat­ing view­ing and is heart­warm­ing to watch.
