A Place to Call Home

A Place to Call Home


Set in rural New South Wales in the period following the Second World War, it follows Sarah Adams, who has returned to Australia after twenty years abroad to start a new life and ends up clashing with wealthy matriarch Elizabeth Bligh.

It’s a very popular show, and for good reason. It’s one of those fun period dramas that just ropes you in. They call it a “compelling melodrama about love and loss set against the social change of the 1950s.”
