          Gallipoli - Australia's most ambitious drama series to date has been produced to coincide with the centenary of the Gallipoli campaign, based on the best-selling book by Les Carlyon. The series centres on 17-year-old Thomas "Tolly" Johnson who puts his age up so he can enlist wit...h his brother Bevan and ends up fighting at Gallipoli in the campaign that helped create the Anzac legend. The story depicts the ten month campaign in Turkey highlighting the landing on 25 April 1915, by ANZAC troops who go into battle on the Gallipoli peninsula. Landing in the dark, Tolly, Bevan and their fellow soldiers endeavour to establish a defensible foothold beneath the treacherous slopes of the peninsula. The series follows both the battle and its aftermath. The soldiers spend eight months learning combat skills while trying to survive in the most difficult of circumstances. By the time of their final evacuation they have learnt much about themselves and their mates.

          From executive producers Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, and Gary Goetzman, The Pacific tracks the real-life journeys of three U.S. Marines Robert Leckie (James Badge Dale), Eugene Sledge (Joe Mazzello), and John Basilone (Jon Seda) across the vast canvas of the Pacific theatre duri...ng World War II. The miniseries follows these men and their fellow Marines from their first battle with the Japanese on Guadalcanal, through the rain forests of Cape Gloucester and the strongholds of Peleliu, across the bloody sands of Iwo Jima, through the horror of Okinawa, and finally to their triumphant but uneasy return home after V-J Day. The miniseries is based in part on the books Helmet for My Pillow by Robert Leckie, and With the Old Breed by Eugene B. Sledge, with additional material from Red Blood, Black Sand by Chuck Tatum, and China Marine by Eugene B. Sledge, as well as original interviews conducted by the filmmakers.
