Since the 29th of May 1996 Australian Story has been aired weekly as a reality documentary series for national Australian television. Every week since the start of the show Caroline Jones has presented the stories of Australians from all backgrounds and walks of life. What stands out about Australian Story is the very personal approach to story-telling, as the stories are told by the subjects of the documentaries as well as their family, friends, colleagues and other related people, instead of by a narrator. It is one of the most popular shows of its kind in Australia, a fact that is illustrated by the numerous Walkley and Logie Awards it has won over the years.
