The Home of Shane Jacobson

Australia Now & Then

On screens August 2021 (Seven Network)

The gloves are off as Shane pits four generations of Australian celebrities against each other with one question:

"Which generation of Aussies had it best?"

For Boomers, their peak years were the 60s and 70s, the Gen X hey-days were the 80s and 90s, for Gen Y it was the Noughties and 2010s, and for Gen Z – well they’re living it right now. Going deep into the heart of Australian life, this fiercely fought and often funny contest asks a different question each episode - when was the best time to be an Aussie kid, who were the hottest generation, which generation are the toughest and which generation are the biggest rebels and rule breakers?

Using hilarious archive footage, the series is hosted by Shane Jacobson and features Merrick Watts, Joel Creasey, Sam Pang, Mel Buttle, Fiona O’Loughlin, Merv Hughes, Brendan “Jonesy” Jones and Chrissy Swan, as well as Gen Z new-comers Lucinda Price and Dave Woodhead.
