A doc featuring military commander Sir John Monash and a series that looks inside Australian art galleries are among the highlights of Australian pubcaster ABC’s 2018 programming slate.

Among the programs featured is Australian-focused doc Hawke: The Larrikin and the Leader, about former prime minister Bob Hawke, as well as General Monash and Me, which follows award-winning journalist Peter Greste on a journey to find about more about Sir John Monash, an Australian World War I hero.

Also on tap for 2018 is the debut of Back in Time for Dinner (pictured), which follows a modern-day Australian family as they discover how the food we eat has transformed over the past 60 years, while the series Employable Me features people with neuro diverse conditions such as autism, OCD and Tourette syndrome as they search for employment.

New game show Think Tank sees three contestants go head to head in a general knowledge contest. Helping the trio are eight everyday Australians — the “think tank” — who have an extraordinary love of trivia and general knowledge.

Everyone’s A Critic opens the doors into some of the nation’s most prestigious art galleries, where the general public are invited to deliver their opinions on works created by some of our most respected and iconic artists.
