Stuff the British Stole: Marc Fennell on repatriation, culture and the evolving museum sector

The second series of the successful Australian-Canadian television series lands on the ABC this month.
An Indian-Australian man dressed all in black sits on a low stone wall. Behind him in the distance stand the Pyramids, rising up from a desert landscape.

‘We shoot the show in 11 different countries, right? But the hardest place to shoot in is to London, because the moment the title is mentioned, suddenly locations and talent just disappear,’ laughs Marc Fennell, creator and host of television series Stuff the British Stole.

Fennell, a Walkley award-winning journalist, is the writer, director and Executive Producer of Stuff the British Stole, which began life as a podcast in 2020 before making the jump across to television as an Australian-Canadian co-production. Its second series airs this coming Monday on ABC TV and iview.
