From the Film Australia Collection.
Made by the Commonwealth Film Unit 1959.
Directed by John Gray.
Produced for the Department of Immigration to assist in the campaign to attract migrants to Australia.
The film was used by immigration officers at information evenings, particularly in Britain. The film provides an introduction to “the Australian way of life” by portraying the daily lives of an “ordinary” family of fairly recent British immigrants. It gives an indication of housing, lifestyle and leisure, work, consumer goods, and services such as transport, health, education, financial assistance cultural institutions and social organizations, in such a way as to reassure future residents. Designed to counteract an image of “bush and billabongs”, the film focuses on urban living and the country’s growth potential.
