Patti fleshes out family tree
Who Do You Think You Are?, SBS, Tuesday at 7.30pm
THE season nine finale of SBS’s popular genealogy series centres on one of Australia’s most recognisable faces: Patti Newton (pictured).
She’s been performing since the age of four and has always wondered where her love of performing has come from. Her only knowledge of show business running in the family is her great-uncle Billy Maloney.
These days, Patti and her husband Bert’s greatest joy in life is their four grandchildren.
She knows very little about her paternal grandmother and is determined to find out why she was never spoken of. Her quest to find her family secrets includes unexpected delights and devastating lows.
