Every year over a hundred families travel around Australia following an annual show circuit which started in the 1890’s.

They are showpeople. In the 1920’s Roy Bell began touring the shows with a Boxing Troupe, Bell’s Touring Stadium. Today the Bell family still follows his tracks.

The Showmen is a 52 min television documentary.
