The Way We Were

Show Summary

The Way We Were is an ABC TV, ten-part series documentary recorded in front of a live studio audience, originating in Australia in July of 2008. Mark Trevorrow, who is best known in Australian as singer and comedian Bob Downe, and Sydney Opera House best-selling performer, hosts this serious, but appealing series. Mark Trevorrow presents a nostalgic look at how Australians have changed over the generations. In each episode, Bob Downe explores a specific moment in Australian history, using an intermingling of archival footage and photographs and mental impressions from prominent people who were present during that timeframe, along with views from ordinary Australians. The first episode, Kids' TV, covers the topic of how television for children has changed over the years. A journey back to early children's programming from the early 1950s and 1960s compares how media has changed childhood, and how computer technology and the Harry Potter book series has affected children today. A later episode, Clocking On, covers the topic of how history shows we have been hard-working people, but face the possibility of computers replacing people in jobs.
