Ivin, Glendyn (director)
Gallipoli, Endemol Australia, 2015
Directed by Glendyn Ivin, based on Les Carlyon’s Gallipoli, in seven episodes. Reviewed for Honest History by Professor Peter Stanley, Honest History President, and military-social historian from the University of New South Wales, Canberra, who has written a number of books referring to Gallipoli, including Quinn’s Post and Lost Boys of Anzac.
Peter Stanley’s review of episode 1 is here and it links to reviews of all later episodes. Other reviews have been done by Craig Mathieson in Fairfax and again. The series is not a ratings winner, suffering particularly from an excess of advertising, though some viewers comment that the subject matter has been done to death.
