In the most diverse series yet, Julia travels around Australia to take some of her favourite people down memory lane. Joining her on the road for this 10-part series will be well-known faces from the worlds of comedy, journalism, entertainment, arts and sport.
As always the interviews are intimate, candid and Julia’s guests reveal parts of their life story that were until now unknown to viewers.
The series launches with former ABC stalwart Kerry O’Brien. In this revealing episode, Julia takes Kerry back to his childhood in suburban Brisbane. Kerry speaks candidly about his difficult and troubled relationship with the Brothers at St Laurence’s College and the long-term effects of a career in journalism.
Australia’s international comedy superstar Rebel Wilson is next up, followed by cricketing legend Glenn McGrath. The fourth episode features arguably Australia’s greatest intellectual export Geoffrey Robertson. Also opening up to Julia in the series are artist Ben Quilty, TV stalwart Kerri-Anne Kennerley, Logie Awardwinning actress Miranda Tapsell and comedians Greig Pickhaver (HG Nelson) and Denise Scott. Along the way Julia springs the odd surprise and calls on parents, friends and old school mates to share their own stories about her guests.
