Walkley award-winning journalist Marc Fennell ( Mastermind, The School That Tried To End Racism, The Feed) , will take audiences on a global adventure during Stuff The British Stole, a new six-part series based on his acclaimed, award-winning ABC Podcast.

This series of history-mysteries will be a wild, entertaining and visually stunning story of some of the most remarkable treasures acquired through the years of the British Empire and is set to air late this year.

An Australia-Canada co-production, Stuff the British Stole is co-produced by Wooden Horse, WildBear Entertainment and Cream Productions (Canada) for the ABC and the CBC. Principal production funding from Screen Australia. Financed with support from the Canada Media Fund, Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit, Ontario Creates, and Content Mint. FremantleMedia will distribute the series world-wide.

Jennifer Collins, ABC Head Factual and Culture, said: “We’re thrilled to partner with the CBC and bring this captivating podcast to television screens across Australia and Canada. Marc Fennell is a phenomenal host, and we can’t wait to see the mysteries of each object unfold.”

Screen Australia’s Head of Documentary, Alex West said, “ Stuff the British Stole promises to give voice to those who have been colonised and its bold exploration of the impact of the British empire is timely and necessary to keep discussions of cultural colonialism ongoing. We are excited to support Marc Fennell and his talented and passionate team in bringing his popular award-winning podcast to the screen in this Australia-Canada co-production.”

Sally Catto, General Manager, Entertainment, Factual and Sports, CBC, said: “We are excited to build on our valuable partnership with ABC and strengthen public broadcasting in both of our countries with this timely, authentic series that will open the eyes and minds of viewers while taking them on an entertaining journey through history.”

“Marc has created a history series that is not only utterly compelling but helps us understand who we are today. For Wooden Horse, WildBear and Cream it is a privilege to partner with two great public broadcasters on other sides of the globe but with so much in common,” said the Executive Producers from Wooden Horse, Wild Bear Entertainment and Cream Productions.
