Summary From sex tapes to Aussies in Syria and so much more, Head First is a series about everyday Australians living extraordinary lives in hidden worlds. Welcome to the world of Internet love scams, celebrity sex tapes, Aussie freedom fighters, people born in the wrong bodies, and teens living under the Intervention. Armed with a mischievous sense of humour and a willingness to get involved in the action, Sabour Bradley wants to take you inside those worlds, and the only way to do that is to dive in... Head First. Dive in with him as he goes undercover to infiltrate the world of Internet love scammers and travels to Ghana to carry out a sting against a gang that rips off vulnerable Australians in episode 1. In episode 2, he becomes the manager of a celebrity wannabe and flies to Hollywood where his young client is tested by the lure of fame, lies and sex tapes. In episode 3, he follows an Australian nurse into war-torn Syria as she searches for her dead brother. In episode 4, he discovers what it's like to be born in the wrong body. Biological sex doesn't always match up with 'brain sex' and when that happens, you either spend your life in torment or you make the decision to transition and become the person you know you are inside. In episode 5, he lives under the rules of the Intervention in Arnhem Land and meets a generation of lost boys. Head First is a close-up and colourful look at some of the most compelling characters and stories in Australia right now.
