David Wilson Library on Film

The David Wilson Library has starred in a new film Sunshine and Oranges, which was broadcast on Saturday 12 January on BBC2.

It tells the story of Margaret Humphreys, a social worker from Nottingham who in the 1980s discovered that for decades successive British Governments had been secretly transporting poor children to Australia (and other colonies). Humphreys investigated this massive, unknown project of forced emigration and uncovered an international scandal of epic proportions.
