Storyline

For the first time, here is the definitive account of how and why we sound the way we do. Presented by raconteur John Clarke, this documentary demonstrates why the Australian accent is one of the hardest in the world to do and chronicles how it has evolved over 200 years into the way we speak today. Australia's cultural DNA can be heard in the accent, but is the broad "Strine" of legend really how most Australians speak? And is it possible that the Australian accent is under threat from external forces? Come on this fascinating journey to discover "The Sounds of Aus".
