A Place to Call Home
Check the showcase TV Guide for current listings.
The 12 episode fourth season will focus on the relationships between the characters as affected by two contrasting social issues in 1954. The first is the conservative wave of fear generated by the “Reds Under the Beds” scare surrounding The Petrov Affair. The second, the wave of liberal change that opened up new social and moral choices of Australians at the time.
Not only a ratings hit at home, the series has won international fans and critics with The Wall Street Journal listing it in its Best Television of 2015 and repeatedly praising it: “A Place to Call Home is a captivatingly filmed, deeply romantic drama of immense intelligence distinguished by a uniformly superb cast” and “an impossibly addictive series set in early-1950s Australia has developed an impassioned following, with its story of the upper class Bligh family, and for good reason. It is period soap opera powered by hefty themes like class, money, religion and the long shadow of World War II, not to mention the stellar cast.”
