Unusual for the time (pre home owned videos or dvds) there was an in depth feature filmed to chronicle the making of this series. A new concept before 'special features' were even considered a typical thing. See more »
This was an excellent mini-series, packed with sub-plots, all revolving around the story of an Aussie platoon during the First World War. Comic relief is provided by the brilliant Paul Hogan as the wheeling-dealing private Pat Cleary, and a sense of realism is maintained through the narrative character of Roly Collins (excellently played by Christopher Cummins). The story never dips in interest and, I'm pleased to say, strives to keep an actuate journal of real events during the Great War from all battles; violent and political.
And if you want to know why the world has to thank Australia and New Zealand for their part in history, I advise you look out for ANZACS.
