The show follows a group of Brits who emigrate to Australia in the 1950s for the princely sum of £10. 

Back in June, we reported on the cast announcements for Ten Pound Poms. The upcoming drama series from writer Danny Brocklehurst, which filmed last year, tells the story of a group of Brits who leave dreary post-war Britain in 1956 for a life-altering adventure down under. The show’s title refers to the processing charge it cost to migrate to Australia at the time.

Now, the BBC have released a series of images giving us a first look at the show’s stars in action.
