Over the next two weeks, ArtSound FM continues our Anzac commemoration by presenting a two part recording of a performance at the commemorative forecourt of the Australian War Memorial from March 1988.
"The Broken Years" is based on readings from letters, diaries and poems telling the stories of ordinary men, women and children during the First World War. The program was arranged for performance by Michael Body and directed and narrated by Hec McMillan. The publications The Broken Years (Bill Gammage), The Anzacs (Patsy Adam Smith), The Australian People and the Great War (Dr Michael McKernan) and The Anzac Book (written and illustrated by the men of Anzac) were used as the sources.. The program also features songs and music of the era presented by the Woden Valley Youth Choir and the Band of the Royal Military College, Duntroon.
