Mark­ing the cen­te­nary of the start of World War I, this new six- part se­ries fo­cuses on tales from the more than 3500 young women who served as nurses for Aus­tralia and New Zealand at Gal­lipoli and the Western Front. Based on real events, tonight’s first episode sees sev­eral nurses – Alice ( Ge­or­gia Flood), Elsie ( Laura Brent), Olive ( Anna McGa­han), Hilda ( An­to­nia Preb­ble) and Grace ( Caro­line Craig) – sign up to help their coun­try be­fore be­ing shipped to Egypt, where they quickly re­alise war is far more bru­tal than they ex­pected as they deal with the seem­ingly end­less pa­rade of con­voys bring­ing them dead and wounded men.
