Gallipoli: The New Zealand Story

Director David Williams

Producer Allan Martin

With Lieutenant-General Sir Leonard Thornton

Lieutenant-General Sir Leonard Thornton presents and narrates an historical account of New Zealand's tragic role in the Gallipoli campaign of 1915, inspired by Maurice Shadbolt's play Once on Chunuk Bair. The story is told through the memories, recollections and photographs of the veterans who served there, and the fate of battalions is traced over the battlefields they fought on.
