During November ABC TV Education is re-running the education pieces spun off the excellent doco Lest We Forget What? with presenter Kate Aubusson and historians Joan Beaumont and Robin Prior. The doco was an eye-opener when first shown in April this year – particularly for its take on how Gen Y sees Anzac – and is highly recommended for middle secondary to upper secondary students. It shows that respect does not preclude the asking of hard questions. The Australian-Aotearoa New Zealand play Dead Men’s Wars makes similar points.
