Anzac Girls

A moving six-part miniseries based on true stories of Australian and New Zealand nurses at Gallipoli and the Western Front. 'ANZAC Girls' is based on real events and real people - Alice (Georgia Flood), Elsie (Laura Brent), Olive (Anna McGahan), Hilda (Antonia Prebble) and Grace (Caroline Craig). Like their brothers, fathers, lovers and husbands, these ANZAC Girls are our heroes. But they were also just ordinary girls - our sisters, our daughters, ourselves - looking for adventure, love, fun and friendship. Beginning in the heady pre-Gallipoli days in Egypt, moving through the devastation of that campaign and the utterly unexpected casualty count, through the bitter months on the barren island of Lemnos, to the long hard years of the war in Europe and the Western Front, 'ANZAC Girls' is personal, intimate and raw.
