WWII: The Price of Empire

Tuesdays at 7:30pm AEST from September 6th until December 10th

Often the story of WWII is told from 1 September 1939 with Germany’s invasion of Poland. But empires had been in conflict since Japan’s invasion of China in 1937. The war encompassed the world in 1941 when the Japanese attacked the American airbase at Pearl Harbor, only to end with a new weapon for a new age. Interviews with eye witnesses from all major theatres of war interlace images of events captured in the British Movietone Archive, providing living testimony to those moments in time.
