Making the ANZAC Girls

Tue, 08/19/2014 - 15:04 -- Nick Dager

Based on Peter Rees’ book The Other ANZACs, ANZAC Girls tells the true story of five military nurses from Australia and New Zealand who served with Allied forces during World War I. Witnessing the horrors of war, the women experienced severe hardships while tending to the wounded and formed bonds of friendship that would last a lifetime. As series producer Lisa Scott (who produced the series with Felicity Packard) explains, the series “offers unique insight by showing how the war affected people, other than soldiers on the line.” The first episode premiered on Australian TV earlier this month and got exceptional ratings around Australia and much critical acclaim.
