Ten Pound Poms on Stan – cheat sheet

A quick briefing on Ten Pound Poms, an Oz and UK co-production that dramatises the arrival of Brits to Australia in the 50s.

Inspired by true events, Ten Pound Poms is six-part series that follows a group of Brits as they leave dreary post-war Britain in 1956 to embark on a life-altering adventure in Australia.
