Why An­zac With Sam Neill

Isis Town and Country - - Television -

Tues­day, ABC, 8.30pm

This week marks the 100-year an­niver­sary of the Battle of Gal­lipoli and, while there may not be any World War I vet­er­ans left among us, it’s doc­u­men­taries like this that en­sure they will never be forgotten. New Zealan­der Sam Neill (right) charts the path of the An­zacs, from their cam­paign in Turkey to the World War II killing fields of Bel­gium, France, Italy and Crete. Per­sonal sto­ries, pho­to­graphs, let­ters and in­ter­views are fea­tured to give a rare in­sight into the hor­rors of the world wars, but also the friend­ships and ca­ma­raderie that de­vel­oped be­tween the Kiwi and Aussie sol­diers, a bond that res­onates to this day.
