Screen Australia is investing in The War That Changed Us, a four-part dramatised history series produced by Andrew Ogilvie, directed by Don Featherstone and written by both Don Featherstone and Clare Wright.
Funded through the National Documentary Program, the series will tell the story of Australia’s involvement in World War I through the lives of five Australians. Their journeys through conflict on the war front and the home front will be brought to life through a blend of personal testimony, drama, expert analysis, location filming and archive.
Screen Australia’s chief executive, Ruth Harley, said: “Since 2005, in association with ABC Television, Screen Australia and its predecessor agencies have brought more than 70 hours of Australian history programming to the national audience.”
“The War That Changed Us has substantial Australian history heritage value, which is one of the core remits of our National Documentary Program. This documentary series is a remarkable Australian story which will be told on a grand scale."
