“Are You Tougher than Your Ancestors?” is a fun and immersive living history series that pits the skills of today’s kids against the exploits of children from Australia’s past, to find out how they measure up!

Fun and fast paced, the series takes today's kids on a wild ride back through time, where they learn as much about themselves as they do about history. Drawing from our rich indigenous and multicultural heritage, the series challenges stereotypes and allows our kids to experience the past in ways they never imagined. They wrestle with disgusting chores, master mind-bending challenges and perform incredible feats of ingenuity as they get down and dirty walking a mile in the shoes of our ancestors.

At the end of each episode we find out whether they were up to the task… and what they discover might just surprise us all!
