A Story of Finding a New Home in Australia

Ten Pound Poms is a six part drama series which tells the story of a little-known part of British and Australian history. This programme not only shows the varied and unique experience of being a new Australian, but it also explores the rich history of the immigrant families and the place they call home.

The assisted migration programme was set up in a post-war Britain in 1956. Many thousands left their dreary lives to embark on a life-altering adventure on the other side of the world. Costing only a tenner, they have been promised a better house, better job prospects and a better quality of life by the sea in sun-soaked Australia. But life down under isn’t exactly the idyllic dream the new arrivals have been promised.

At the heart of the BBC One programme is the Roberts family. Arriving full of dreams and hopes for adventure, they discover things aren't as easy as they first thought. Poor living conditions at the migrant hostel and local attitudes towards immigrants test their resolve. The series focuses on Kate, a young nurse, arrives without her fiancé and will do whatever it takes to try and rewrite her devastating past. Bill has lost his family business back home and is so desperate to prove he’s living the Australian dream.

Ten Pounds Poms is a big bold character piece about what it means to start again. The brand-new original drama series is created by BAFTA-winning Danny Brocklehurst (Ordinary Lies). Being a co-production between BBC and Stan, Australian BBC viewers can tune in to the series easily.
