This is the story of Australia and New Zealand at war as never seen before. For the first time, only original colour footage is used to paint a vividly detailed picture of these closely allied nations, from the build up to World War Two to the end of the Vietnam Conflict. All the colour is real - not colourised - offering a rare glimpse of a time usually seen in black and white. Newly discovered films, home movies and compelling first-hand accounts allow viewers a very personal connection to the war experience, both on the battlefield and on the homefront. In colour, that shared history becomes even more intimate and involving. Contains three episodes: "Children of the Empire", "Fighting Back" and "The War That Never Ends". Narrated by Russell Crowe.
