Drawing on the historic letters and diaries of five young women, and Peter Rees’ book The Other Anzacs, the six-part series follows the lesser-known true story of Australia and New Zealand in the First World War.
“I’m delighted that More 4 has acquired Screentime’s ANZAC GIRLS. It’s a work of exceptional quality and sensitivity, which launched to tremendous critical acclaim and high audience viewing figures on its debut with Australia’s ABC We hope that that More 4’s audience are as charmed and moved by the show as we are.” – Managing Director, all3media International, Louise Pedersen
Set in 1915, the drama depicts the struggles of the fledgling nurses as they are drafted to the Middle East as part of a secret military campaign.
Their lives, loves and losses will be recreated as the audience experiences the reality of life in the war fields of Gallipoli and the Western Front in Europe.
ANZAC Girls will air on More4 next year.
