Ten Pound Poms Plot
According to a BBC synopsis: “Ten Pound Poms 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 precisely 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.”
The source of the show’s name is the word used to refer to the British immigrants who settled in Australia and New Zealand after World War II. By itself, “pom” is another slang term for persons from the UK, while “ten pounds” refers to the relocation fee that British nationals would pay (approximately £265 in today’s money).

What Do People Say About Ten Pound Poms?
“Ten Pounds Poms is a big bold character piece about what it means to start again, to be an outsider in a new land,” says writer Danny.
“It asks questions about success and failure, identity, parenthood, and belonging. The assisted migration program is a little-known part of British and Australian history but offers endless stories about the people who traveled to the other side of the world in search of a better life. I couldn’t be more delighted to be making the show with the BBC, Eleven and Stan.”
Tommy Bulfin, Commissioning Editor, BBC Drama, says: “We are thrilled to bring this timely story to the screen. It perfectly captures the courage and determination of our brilliant British migrants as they uproot their entire lives and try to adjust to a new life in an often hostile environment. Told with Danny’s characteristic wit and heart, Ten Pound Poms will delight BBC audiences when it hits the screen next year.”
