Oranges and Sunshine

Oranges and Sunshine tells the true story of Margaret Humphreys (Emily Watson), a social worker from Nottingham, who uncovered one of the most significant social scandals in recent times: The forced migration of children from the United Kingdom to Australia. For decades the British government had covered up the fact that 130,000 children in care had been sent abroad to commonwealth countries, mainly Australia. Children as young as four had been told that their parents were dead, and were sent to children's homes on the other side of the world. Many were subjected to appalling abuse. They were promised oranges and sunshine; they got hard labour and life in institutions. Margaret Humphreys has spent the past 25 years battling to reunite these divided families.
