WDYTYA Australia: Vince Colosimo

Actor Vince Colosimo travels to Italy to find out about his grandfather’s service with the WW2 Italian army on the Russian front and learns about the winter retreat during which only one in ten survived. He also explores the triumphs and tragedies of his maternal grandmother's family where four brother died in two days from an unidentified cause suspected to be malaria.

Italian families are often large and extended. There are more comments about this program than any other so far in the series, most from Italian-Australians judging by the names.
