Fascinating objects bring history to life

Take a road trip of discovery with Warren Brown as he reveals a fascinating mix of national treasures drawn from collections across Australia.

The political cartoonist, columnist and history 'tragic' spotlights 15 cherished and sometimes forgotten objects in the first season of five-minute documentaries in the National Treasures series.

These objects are an irreplaceable part of our national story, bringing our history to life and helping us understand who we are.

This Investigating National Treasures collection is based on the original television series National Treasures, produced by Film Australia with the assistance of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and broadcast nationally on ABC television.
