A scene from the Australian drama series, ‘The Heights.’

Businesses often aim to help the neighborhoods they’re based in, but sometimes their aid can ultimately lead to more conflict. That’s certainly the case for the Australian drama series, ‘The Heights.’ The television show, which is set in the country’s inner-city neighborhood of Arcadia Heights, explores the relationships between the residents of the Arcadia social housing tower and the people who live in the rapidly gentrifying community that surrounds it.

The drama, whose first series premiered on Australia’s ABC network last year, is now airing on the BBC One channel on Filmon TV. (Note that the BBC One channel is only available for free to viewers in the UK, and international users who have a paid subscription.) The next episode to air on Filmon will stream this morning at 8:45-9:15am local time. It can be watched live, or recorded and watched at a later time.

Episode 23 of Series 1 of ‘The Heights’ was written by Melissa Lee Speyer, and directed by Andrew Prowse. On the episode, family strains show for Sully (Koa Nuen) and his mother, and Sabine (Bridie McKim) turns matchmaker for Mich (Calen Tassone).

The BBC One channel is notable for offering something of value for everyone with a range of high-quality, popular programming for a modern UK audience. The channel was named Channel of the Year at the 2007 Broadcast Awards. FilmOn is a popular streaming service that enables viewers to watch live and recorded UK and international television shows, movies and music videos in a variety of genres, including news, sports, drama, comedy, horror, lifestyle, shopping, pop, EDM and blues.
