New Australian drama A Place to Call Home will air on Sundays.
The New drama from Seven’s dream creator Bevan Lee will follow the 2hr finale for My Kitchen Rules which begins at 6:30pm.
It’s 1953 and the horrors of World War II are still raw and alive in many memories. Graceful yet enigmatic nurse Sarah Adams (Marta Dusseldorp) learns of the death of her half-brother and returns to Australia from London to care for her estranged mother.
Working her passage home aboard an ocean liner, Sarah becomes involved in the lives of the Blighs, a wealthy Australian pastoralist family. She develops an immediate connection with handsome and charming widower George (Brett Climo), as well as his modern young daughter Anna (Abby Earl) and withdrawn daughter-in-law Olivia (Arianwen Parkes-Lockwood).
But it is when Sarah unwittingly discovers a potentially scandalous Bligh family secret that her future becomes forever linked with theirs. Only the uncompromising matriarch of the family, Elizabeth (Noni Hazlehurst), and her grandson James (David Berry) know Sarah has uncovered this family skeleton. Elizabeth is determined to keep it that way – and Sarah at arm’s length.
But Sarah’s involvement with the Blighs only intensifies when, after her attempt at reconciliation with her mother goes awry, she accepts an offer from George to come and work in Inverness, the picturesque country town near the beautiful estate of Ash Park where the family resides.
