Ten Pound Poms

The six-part series follows a group of Brits as they leave dreary post-war Britain in 1956 to embark on a life-altering adventure on the other side of the world.

For 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.

Struggling with their new identity as immigrants, we follow their triumphs and pitfalls as they adapt to a new life in a new country, far from Britain and familiarity.

At the heart of the drama are Annie and Terry Roberts.

They try to make the best of the situation for their family, but the poor living conditions at the migrant hostel and local attitudes towards immigrants test them in ways they couldn't have imagined.

They aren't the only people at the hostel avoiding the truth.

Kate is a young nurse who 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 that he'll stop at nothing in order to get a lifestyle he can't sustain.

Teenager Stevie comes from a troubled background and hopes to use this new adventure to escape his oppressive father.

Meanwhile, Ron, an Indigenous Australian war veteran, struggles with feeling like an outsider in his own country.

In the series premiere: In dreary postwar Manchester, Annie Roberts is at her wits' end when husband Terry spends all his wages down the pub.

Desperate for a better life for her children, Annie responds to an emigration advert that promises Brits a prosperous new life in Australia for a tenner.

Expecting whitewashed houses and sun-soaked adventures, the Roberts family arrive in Sydney to find life down under isn't quite what they've been sold.
