In 2022, SBS will create moments that get the nation talking, surprise with new perspectives and entertain with powerful stories. Today, SBS has revealed its plans for this year, with a compelling and courageous line up of programming that continues to set the network apart, exploring stories from across the country, spanning cultures and communities, and connecting with Australia in all its diversity.

SBS Managing Director, James Taylor, said: SBS in 2022 is natively multilingual, digital-first, truly innovative, and trusted by a growing audience. Come to us on any platform and you'll find stories that give a voice to communities otherwise unheard, perspectives that break down barriers, entertainment and sporting moments that unite us, news that Australians turn to, and programs that are capturing the hearts and minds of people around the world.

Our distinctive content and world-class services are underpinned by the incredibly diverse creative talent that exists in Australia. At SBS, we want to ensure that everyone in our sector can participate with equal opportunity to succeed, and we have expanded our commitment to on-screen and off-screen inclusion through new commissioning guidelines and targets we're sharing today - the most ambitious, nuanced and comprehensive commitment in our industry. As we grow more diverse as a nation, all Australians will continue to recognise themselves and their communities on SBS.

SBS Acting Director of Television and Online Content, Chris Irvine said: 2022 is set to be another enormous year for SBS, packed full of world class content. We are a home for all Australians, and the true diversity of Australia needs to be celebrated and reflected both on our screens and behind the camera. Examining issues central to our Charter, we continue to uncover what it means to be Australian today. This year, impactful and powerful storytelling across SBS screens will continue to inspire, inform and emotionally connect with our audience.

SBS Director of Indigenous Content, Tanya Denning-Orman, said: First Nations storytelling will be loud and proud across SBS channels and platforms in 2022, a year that will see us mark a decade of NITV being available free-to-air as part of the SBS network. With NITV at its heart, SBS is bringing more First Nations voices and perspectives to all Australians with programs celebrating culture and Country, sharing knowledges, and acknowledging truths.

SBS continues to be a leader in original documentaries that challenge, inform and entertain our audiences. SBS has secured the exclusive rights to commission an Australian version of Alone, the smash-hit series where participants are forced to survive on their own in harsh terrain. Alone is the most successful factual franchise in the history of SBS On Demand, and Alone Australiawill see 10 Australians dropped in remote wilderness, where they'll be challenged by the merciless forces of nature and hunger as they compete for a life-changing prize.

See What You Made Me Do was one of SBS's most successful factual programs in 2021, and investigative journalist Jess Hill returns to SBS with Yes, No, Maybe, a bold new documentary series exploring consent in Australia, following an explosive year of this issue in the headlines. Premiering Wednesday 16 March, Wentworth's Danielle Cormack will host the ground-breaking documentary series Life on the Outside, tackling recidivism and asking the important question - would you let a formerly incarcerated person stay in your home? An Australian first, the series follows convicted criminals as they're placed into households for the first 100 days of release. And hosted by Rachel Perkins, The Australian Warsexamines how the settlement wars have shaped Australia today.

In Our Law from NITV, documentary cameras are granted intimate and candid access to the Indigenous officers and cadets attempting to break the cycle of Indigenous incarceration and repair a deeply troubled Aboriginal-police relationship, while giving voice to the communities being policed. Off Countryfollows the lives of seven Indigenous students over a year at the prestigious Geelong Grammar School, grappling with family tragedy, mental health and identity issues. And hosted by Tahlia Liddle, Larapintatakes audiences on a historical, cultural and
