The ABC NEWS interview program, One Plus One, returns with a special 8-part series exploring the notion of ‘grit’, hosted by Kurt Fearnley.
What does it mean to have grit?
Kurt talks to some well-known Australians who have faced challenges and set-backs in their lives, only to overcome them and go on to make a real difference.
He sets out to find out what drives them and what characteristics it takes to reach those goals.
Episode One: Turia Pitt
A decade ago, Turia Pitt was running an ultramarathon when a grassfire caused burns to 65% of her body.
Doctors weren’t sure she would survive, but she encapsulates what it means to have ‘grit’. She joins Kurt Fearnley for a run, and a conversation about determination.
