Australian View of GALLIPOLI - Deadline Gallipoli review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

Interesting series viewed from the Australian perspective of what happened during the landings and impasse that followed until the withdrawal. Add to that the interlinked story of four newspaper correspondents and how they viewed the offensive and reported it.  What the series did not cover was the fact the Australian forces were escorted from Singapore by a squadron of the Imperial Japanese Navy.

Illuminating - Deadline Gallipoli review by CV

Spoiler Alert

The story is told from the point of view of four journalists who try to get the truth of the debacle of the Gallipoli "invasion" out to the British and Australian publics. The historical characters are vividly drawn and contrasted and Charles Dance as a gruff General Hamilton is a masterly performance. Charles Bean is a fascinatingly unlikely character who charges into the thick of the action without arms for the sake of observing every detail of battle. The dialogue is punchy and there are great one-line responses : the reporter Schuler presents the general with photographs of horrific wounds to individual soldiers. The general scoffs that no-one will see them (as he will confiscate them) but Schuler replies: "No, but you did." The theme is very topical with all that is going on in Russia concerning the war in Ukraine.

There is an interesting extra of the background and biographies of the various reporters and it is apparent that a lot of careful research went into the making of this feature film as Bean's diaries in particular were very detailed and presumably all his experiences were genuinely depicted. He is both superior and compassionate by turns and the actor is very well matched in appearance.

Yes, Keith Murdoch is the father of Rupert! While the son sought the truth in major issues of war, the son's newspaper makes vast sums of wealth, seeking the "truth" by spying on private lives!
