Deprived of their wallets, phones and passports they board a smuggler’s boat, are rescued mid-ocean, experience immigration raids in Malaysia, live in Kenyan refugee camps and visit slums in Jordan before ultimately making it to the Congo and Iraq, protected by UN peacekeepers and the US military. For some of the Aussies, it’s their first time abroad. For all of them, it’s the journey of a lifetime.

Go Back Live - Episode 3

Jacqui and Marina are still in the former ISIS stronghold of Raqqa, the most destroyed city in the world according to Amnesty. The human cost of liberating the city was high as the Alaisa family relatives show them where 35 of their family members were killed in a coalition airstrike. Even more confronting for the two participants is a live visit to a mass grave site on the outskirts of the city.

Two new participants join Go Back Live as we turn our attention closer to Australia. Danni and Gareth are two young Australians with very different perspectives on the way we treat refugees and asylum seekers. After living with Tamil asylum seekers in Melbourne the pair find themselves on Manus Island where they are confronted with the Australian policy of offshore detention. We also cross live to Nauru and hear the traumatic stories of refugees detained on the island with nowhere to go.

Back in South Sudan Spida and Meshel join a Blue Helmets patrol protecting women collecting firewood from Bentui POC. They also visit a maternity clinic for displaced women.

Gretel and Steve have made their way by boat from Turkey to the Greek island of Lesbos, the epicentre of refugee boat arrivals into Europe. They experience the horror of the crowded refugee camps where thousands are living in limbo in shocking conditions.

In our final crosses we speak with all the participants and see whether their dramatic refugee experience has changed their views.

Go Back Live - Complete Series

Go Back to Where You Came From Live is a bold adaption of SBS’s most successful factual format. The fundamental premise remains the same, to send Australians with strong views on refugees and asylum seekers on a confronting refugee journey. The simple aim is to challenge their opinions by walking in the footsteps of refugees. The series has no agenda other than to provoke more informed debate and discussion.

Undertaking the refugee experience are former senator Jacqui Lambie, refugee lawyer Marina Brizar, former AFL star Spida Everitt, comedian Meshel Laurie, prison youth worker Steve, presenter Gretel Killeen, and young Australians Dannii and Gareth.

Go Back Live - Episode 1

The first six participants begin their immersive experience meeting refugee families in Australia. Former Senator Jacqui Lambie and refugee lawyer Marina Brizar spend time with the Alaisa family, Syrian refugees now living safely in Sydney. We then cross to Jacqui and Marina as they go back to Syria. Having just experienced life on the frontline in the fight against ISIS we cross as they try to find - in real time - the Alaisa family’s bombed out home in Raqqa.

Meanwhile former AFL star Spida Everett and comedian Meshel Laurie have spent time with a South Sudanese family in Melbourne where they confront the issue of African ‘gangs’ head on. We then cross live to Spida and Jacqui as they find themselves in South Sudan at a POC (Protection of Civilians) camp, now the second largest ‘city’ in the country housing over a hundred thousand displaced people.

In Turkey we cross live to prison youth worker Steve and presenter Gretel Killeen as they experience the border region close to the besieged Syrian city of Idlib. Back in Australia they have lived with the Nakour family, Syrian refugees living in Sydney.

During the live telecast we cross to a series of social media UGC stories where Ray and Janice speak directly to refugees in crisis areas around the world.

Go Back Live - Episode 2

Jacqui Lambie and refugee lawyer Marina Brizar are in Raqqa following a live demining team. Raqqa is a city riddled with the lethal explosive devices after they were planted by departing ISIS fighters. The two participants have also visited the notorious square where ISIS publicly beheaded civilians. The experience is likely to be especially confronting for Jacqui who never saw active service during her time in the Australian army.

In Bentui POC Spida Everett and Meshel Laurie try to find the long lost sister of Jeffah. She and her brother haven’t seen each other for more than twenty years. In another continent Gretel and Steve have travelled to the north coast of Turkey to meet the aunt of 3 year-old drowning victim Alan Kurdi who retells the tragic story that became front-page news around the world. They then begin a boat journey - in real time - from the Turkish coast toward the Greek island of Lesbos. The conditions may look benign but an estimated 13,500 refugees have died since 2015 making similar journeys to Europe.

Gretel and Steve’s journey is particularly relevant with Australia’s Operation Sovereign Borders policy gaining world attention for its effectiveness in deterring refugees.

We cross to more social media and self-filmed stories where Ray and Janice speak directly to refugees in crisis areas around the world. Go Back Live will be crossing to refugees in Afghanistan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Venezuela, Idlib and other locations.
