Nicknamed Ten Pound Poms after the £10 processing fees, the first series saw them leave post-War Britain in search of a better job and quality of life, but soon learn of a much harsher reality.

The second series will re-join the Poms a year on in 1957, with Keegan's (Fool Me Once) nurse Kate Thorne and the Roberts family (led by Marsay, Game of Thrones, and Brown, Luther) still seeking the sun-soaked Australian dream they were promised.
