Have you heard of Floella Benjamin? Today she’s one of Britain’s best-loved TV personalities. She’s acted in and presented shows like Chuggington and Play School. In between, she’s written books, sung in musicals and been a school governor. But life for Floella wasn’t always like this… Join the young Floella as she arrives in England from Trinidad in early 1960s. She’s ten, and she hasn’t seen her parents for fifteen months.

If she wants to survive, Floella will have to prove herself…
