Insight started out as a national domestic current affairs program dealing primarily with Australian issues, while Dateline covered international ones. It was hosted from 1999 until 2001 by Dr Gael Jennings. After that, Jenny Brockie, coming from the ABC, began to host the programme.

Soon thereafter, the format was transformed to "a discussion forum focusing on a single issue with the participation of a studio audience". In the course of the programme, there are sometimes live satellite links to experts from around the globe, but the main focus in recent times (as of 2019) is on the studio guests who talk about their personal experience of various issues, with contributions by selected audience members. Recent episodes have focused on more personal issues and challenges faced by ordinary people. Topics have included Indigenous issues, endometriosis, school bullying, ME/CFS, transgender people, etc.[1]

SBS World News Australia presenter Anton Enus is a fill-in presenter.
