So many of us Australians don’t know our own history. But that can all change. Join Sydney-based broadcaster and author Katrina Roe and The Outback Historian Paul Roe as they make the "invisible" visible by digging up the buried stories of Australia’s heroes, pioneers and visionaries.

Here, you'll meet Australians from every corner of the country, the city and the bush including migrants and Indigenous Australians, men and women, nurses, doctors, activists, boxers, athletes, missionaries and ministers. The one thing they all have in common is that their faith inspired them to work for the greater good and put others before themselves.
