Great Australian Stuff on ABC announces air date

Great Australian Stuff on ABC – Tony Armstrong unpacks the surprising, strange, and sometimes dark history behind our most iconic stuff in this fascinating four-part series.

The Logie Award-winner and ABC News Breakfast sports presenter discovers some surprising histories – from cakes to casks, meat pies and Chicko Rolls, Speedos and Stubbies.

Great Australian Stuff features some of our most famous and loved products, inventions, food and fashion and it examines Australian history through the lens of some old favourites – Vegemite, Hills Hoist, the Boomerang, the Victa lawn mower, One Day Cricket and Sherrin footballs.

Joining Tony to share stories about their stuff are Benjamin Law, Nazeem Hussain, Jenny Kee, Nornie Bero, Kevin Kropinyeri, Richard Glover and Jean Kittson to name a few. Tony digs deep into the ABC archives to uncover what makes some stuff “great”, what’s our most loved – and loathed stuff – and what stuff we should celebrate.
