You Can’t Ask That, ABC, Wed­nes­day April 3 at 9pm

THE fourth se­ries of this doc­u­men­tary se­ries asks mis­un­der­stood, mis­judged or marginalis­ed Aus­tralians the awk­ward, in­ap­pro­pri­ate or un­com­fort­able ques­tions you’ve al­ways wanted to know the an­swers to but may have been afraid to ask.

This proudly home-grown for­mat at­tacks stereo­types and stigma by ask­ing con­fronting and loaded ques­tions to Aus­tralians whose lives are dom­i­nated by the judg­ments of the rest of us.

In­ter­vie­wees share their first-per­son in­sights and lived ex­pe­ri­ences with can­dour, hu­mour and dig­nity.

The open­ing episode goes be­yond the shock­ing sta­tis­tics of do­mes­tic and fam­ily vi­o­lence, em­pow­er­ing eight sur­vivors to re­flect on their per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ences of liv­ing in vi­o­lent, abu­sive and con­trol­ling re­la­tion­ships.
