This film portray's the setting up of the Child migration Trust after its founder came into contact with a lady trying to search for her lost family roots due to being a former British child migrant sent to Australiain the fifties. This is a very difficult story to portray as it covers the shocking conditions that so many former child migrants suffered at the hands of their host commonwealth country. I am a former child migrant sent to New Zealand. I have also researched our emmingrational social historic plight. Therefore I understand the issues implicated in the film. This film is very worth while to be viewed by the public as it gives an understanding of what so many endured, I was a very lucky one and adopted by kind folk in NZ. I have my own 20 minute film documentary on Online to offer for viewing and research. I too searched for my lost old English family as I was like all of us victims of being shattered from our country of birth who should have cared for us in our rightful home grounds & country. Please contact me if you wish to promote my film made by an independent budding film Producer Oranges & Sunshine as above is a must see film... I am pleased for its long time awaited publicity. Thanking you Anthony. UK,NZ,Australia... retired in my birth town England these future days. Pen name; "tonykiwi" for my full multi migrational life story on offer for publication.
