Gallipoli: Brothers in Arms

Each year, thousands of Australians and New Zealanders of all ages make the pilgrimage to Gallipoli to commemorate Anzac Day. For most, it is a profoundly emotional experience in a place where many believe our national identity was forged. The Gallipoli Peninsula is equally revered as a site of remembrance by our allies (Britain, France and India) and by the Turkish people who suffered a quarter of a million casualties in defending their homeland against this Allied invasion. In 2006, Andrew Denton went to meet some of these pilgrims to listen to their stories, to ask why they had made the journey and what they were learning from it. Focusing on the war-time experiences of three pairs of brothers, as told by the families who remember them, he returned with a portrait of a special place which, then and now, is crucial to our understanding of ourselves and our nation.
