On the 25th of April each year, Australians and New Zealanders commemorate Anzac Day, remembering those who fought in and lost their lives during WWI. This day is used to define the essence of each nation with qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice but what are the real stories behind the ANZACS?
Presenter Kate Aubusson travels chronologically and thematically through the past: from the piss-ups in Istanbul en-route to Anzac Cove on Anzac day, to the forgotten battlefields of the Western Front. She meets serving soldiers, schoolkids and eminent military scholars, many who are involved with training the next generation of Australian soldiers. These encounters bring startling discoveries, which collide with the mythologies we hold dear but they make for an even better, more awe inspiring story. It is a journey that will change what we all think.
