Inspired by journalist Jess Hill’s award-winning book of the same name, See What You Made Me Do is a probing investigation into the increasingly prevalent problem of domestic and family violence in Australia.

Airing during Domestic & Family Violence Awareness Month, the documentary series explores the catastrophic impact of domestic violence. Each episode examines real cases of violence in the home and will feature survivors and their families, experts on domestic violence, and perpetrators.

As Hill states,

“Millions of Australians have been subjected to domestic abuse and coercive control. The time to confront it is now.

“Domestic abuse is a corrosive force undermining the fabric of our society, and causes immeasurable harm to individuals and families. It is still badly misunderstood, and our systems – police, courts, family law – are still a long way from being reliably protective. In fact, too often, they further enable the perpetrator and perpetuate the abuse. With this SBS series, we hope to kickstart more difficult and honest conversations – in our households, police stations and parliaments. See What You Made Me Do is paradigm-changing television.”
