In a lifetime of reporting, no one has ever asked Charles Wooley to go out and find ‘happiness’.

Reporters get assigned to droughts, floods, earthquakes, wars and misery aplenty.

But the elusive subject of human happiness? Where do you begin?

In Australia, people are living longer and richer lives than ever; yet they’re still complaining.

So Charles ventured forth on a strange journey of self-discovery to find out why we are so unhappy and how to put a smile back on our dials.
