Ten Pound Poms is a brand new six-part drama on BBC One that tells the story of a group of Brits who flee dreary post-war Britain and head for a new life Down Under. For just £10, they're offered a new house, better jobs, and a better prospect of life in sunny Australia.

But, upon their arrival on the other side of the world, they realise that it's not quite what they expected. As the synopsis explains: "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."
