Can't see another thread on this yet - but I've just watched the ad for Love Child on channel 9.

Has anyone seen the previews? I really want to watch this series but I get so emotional with some shows. Just the preview/ad I just saw now had me ranting and raving to dh about how  things were back in those years.

It’s 1969 in Kings Cross and Joan Miller (Jessica Marais), a smart and sophisticated midwife, returns home from London to take a job at the Kings Cross Hospital and find a new life for herself, at a time when Australia is coming of age and the new generation believes anything is possible.

Jonathan LaPaglia plays the charismatic Dr Patrick McNaughton, head of obstetrics at Kings Cross Hospital, and Mandy McElhinney plays Frances Bolton, the tough matron who also controls the running of Stanton House, a home for unwed pregnant young women.

Their lives intersect between Kings Cross Hospital, Stanton House and the wild streets of Darlinghurst beyond the hospital walls.

The cast also includes Ryan Corr, Ella Scott Lynch, Sophie Hensser, Miranda Tapsell, Gracie Gilbert and Harriet Dyer.

In a joint statement, Andy Ryan and Jo Rooney, joint Heads of Drama at the Nine Network, said: “A powerful and uplifting series, Love Child tells the stories of young women and men fighting an unjust system in a world on the brink of change.

“We are thrilled to join forces again with Playmaker Media to bring Love Child to the Australian audience and showcase a superb cast.”

David Maher and David Taylor, from Playmaker, describe Love Child as a series with a stellar cast, a gripping story, and all the exuberant music, fashion and attitude of the late 1960s.

I'm really glad you've mentioned the show, sounds like it will be interesting and have some interesting storylines.

My SIL worked on this show. It is about Women of the 70s (could cover longer period of time) that had to give up their children as they were unmarried when pregnant.
