Summary
For generations of New Zealanders and Australians, England has been the "mother country". When Great Britain declares war on Germany in 1939, the Anzac nations follow. Dramatic colour footage in this episode captures the shocking reality of an escalating conflict, including the fight for Greece and Singapore, and the Battle of Midway. Among unexpected film gems in this episode are private footage taken by Australian Prime Minister Robert Menzies on his visit to bomb-ravaged London, an extraordinary one-man campaign to film messages from families for the troops in Tobruk, and surprising coverage of a homemade Kiwi "tank" constructed out of corrugated steel and a Caterpillar tractor! A Film Australia National Interest Program in association with TWI, Nine Network Australia, ScreenSound Australia, NZ on Air, TVNZ and the New Zealand Ministry of Defence.
