VIENNA (AFP) - Former California "governator" Arnold Schwarzenegger on Wednesday visited the Austrian village where he was born to film parts of an upcoming United States (US) television documentary on his life.

"People need to understand where I grew up and what was important in my upbringing and my life," the 65-year-old Hollywood film actor and former Mr Universe and Mr Olympia bodybuilding champion said.

Schwarzenegger showed the crew from US network CBS around his two-storey childhood home in Thal in the southern state of Styria that last July opened as a museum with around 1,000 exhibits including his very first weights and movie memorabilia.

The documentary is to accompany the release in October of his autobiography Total Recall, named after one of his many action films.
