Deadline Gallipoli
Saturday 21st and 28th October at 9pm

Sam Worthington, Hugh Dancy, Rachel Griffiths, Bryan Brown, Anna Torv and Charles Dance appear in the star-studded re-telling of one of Australia's defining moments of the 20th century. This channel premiere two-part miniseries explores the origin of the Gallipoli legend from the point of view of war correspondents Charles Bean, Ellis Ashmead-Bartlett, Phillip Schuler and Keith Murdoch, who lived through the campaign and bore witness to the extraordinary events that unfolded on the shores of Gallipoli in 1915. These were the first truly embedded war correspondents whose defiance ignited a change in the campaign's course and whose commitment to the stories of the men turned the war from a strategic failure into a triumph of the human spirit.
