The tricky subject matter of British migration to Australia and the controversial 'White Australia' policy is handled with great aplomb. The old photographs and archive are cleverly brought to life using remarkable computer trickery and the journey of the migrants engaging and at times absolutely heartbreaking. As a Ten Pound Pom myself, I can relate to many of the stories and anecdotes told by the characters in the film. Ten Pound Poms just been voted the Australian documentary of the year by the Sydney Morning Herald. I would definitely agree! An important film about an almost forgotten part of our history that should be seen by everyone in Australia.
