On The Day I Was Born  


This format combines nostalgia, national and international news and popular culture with the personal insight into a well-known face.

Each show chronicles a well loved celebrity as they sift through the newspapers, radio and television archive from the day they were born. Who was making news? Who was making trouble? What were the significant sporting events on the day? What fashion, music, film, food, television programmes, fads were in vogue?

After the celebrity has gained a good insight into events on the day they were born, under the guidance of a historian, they select three key events that resonate with them and revisit the places, people and stories from that day and time.

This format offers a unique way for broadcasters to re-package their existing archive collections into an entertaining half hour of television suitable for peak time viewing.

Over a 1/3 of the viewing audience was ABC 1 Adults.

On the Day I was Born is in development for a second series.
