Boys of the Dardanelles

  • Producer / Writer / Director: Richard Dennison

April 25, 1915 is commemorated as the day that Gallipoli became enshrined forever in Australia’s mythology. The moment that a new nation’s identity was sealed in a blood sacrifice.

But the young volunteers, going into battle for the first time, the name was not ringing in their ears.

Boys of the Dardanelles looks at Gallipoli from the perspective of the ordinary soldier – told by the survivors.
