Dumb, Drunk & Racist sneak peek
Australians get a bad rap overseas, and our stocks seem especially low in India. In fact, a sizeable chunk of India's 1.2 billion people think Aussies are dumb, drunk and racist. But doesn't every country have its negative stereotypes? In this six-part factual series, journalist Joe Hildebrand takes four Indians on a road trip around Australia to examine our worst stereotypes — are we really beer-swilling, racist bogans, or are we simply misunderstood? Shot on location in India and across Australia, this series puts its Indian protagonists smack bang in the middle of passionate debates and immersive experiences that could change their opinion of Australia forever. After three weeks of seeing the good, the bad and the ugly up close, will our intrepid Indian travellers still think that Australians are dumb, drunk and racist? And what will we think of ourselves, after seeing Australia through their eyes?
