Join these characters as they learn the importance of persistence and perspective during challenging journeys.


Persistence is everything! Provided with perseverance comes perspective, that is. In one short, a vain and arrogant youth dares to enter Baba Yaga’s living house of bones. In another short, a girl learns that her mild-mannered father was a record-setting globetrotter. In the last short, two brothers re-enact their ancestor's trek in the harsh desert at their age, long ago. Pace yourself!

ARE YOU TOUGHER THAN YOUR ANCESTORS? CAMELEERS - THE ORIGINAL GHAN TRAINS (Short Film)


Synopsis: "Are You Tougher than Your Ancestors?" is a fun and immersive living history series that pits the skills of today’s kids against the adventures of children from Australia’s past, to find out how they measure up! Fun and fast-paced, we challenge modern kids to walk in the shoes of a child from another era. Diving into new worlds, they learn as much about themselves as they do about history… and unearth some unexpected skills in the process! In episode 5, Ezekiel and Nathaniel guide a camel train through Australia’s harsh desert country following the route taken in the early 1900s by teenage Afghan Aboriginal cameleer, William Satour.
