AUSTRALIAN EPIC re-telling sterling Oz exploits in World War One, specifically gruesome slaughter at Gallipoli. Strong stuff, but weirdly flung out over here on weekday afternoons post-NEIGHBOURS, before given a proper airing some time later in the evening. Memorable oom-pah title theme, moving expertly from brass band cacophony (join the crusade!) all the way down to solo flute (war is hell!)

    Mendacious red-tabbed Brits waste dinkum Aussie volunteers. Its a bit like Weir’s film ‘Gallipoli’ strung out over several weeks. and about as historically reliable as Jonathan Reys Meyers, ‘Henry VIII’

    ..and the kid from ‘Skippy’ grew a mustache and got killed at the end.
