This Is Your Life (The Harrisville Version)
One of the most famous TV shows in the world will soon be replicated in uptown Harrisville, – telling the life stories of the notable clan members who have become synonyms with clan Forsyth Queensland since 1979!
Our selected presenters will surprise a well-known Clan personality and present them with those famous words: “This Is Your Life”.
Our Clan celebrity and their presenter with then embark on a humorous and emotional journey, looking back at the life, from the often humble beginnings to where they are now.
With its good-hearted, nostalgic feel, it is no surprise that you will be entertained with these true life stories.
