[ABC/8:30pm] Andrew Denton’s Gallipoli: Brothers in Arms. Why are more Australians drawn to the shores of Gallipoli each year? The Dawn Service at Anzac Cove, once a modest gathering of souls, has become an event on a scale that rivals the original invasion. The gentle, grassy slopes of this Turkish landmark are thronged with the relatives of those who fought and died, veterans of other conflicts, the merely curious, and a generation of backpackers paying their respects as they circle the globe. In 2006, Andrew Denton went to meet some of these pilgrims, to listen to their stories, to ask why they had made the journey and what they were learning from it. Focusing on the war-time experiences of three pairs of brothers, as told by the families who remember them, Andrew returned with a portrait of a special place, which then as now, is crucial to our understanding of ourselves and our nation. John Boyden’s great uncles fought at Gallipoli. John is from Sydney and he is the first of the Boyden family to see where these two brothers went to war. In 1914, the Boyden brothers were unlikely heroes: 22-year-old Stewart Boyden was an accountant, and Rex, – only 18 – worked for a tobacco company. When war broke out, they were keen to enlist. Father and daughter Alf and Fiona Gardiner are from Brisbane. Alf’s father and uncle were amongst the first Australians to land at Gallipoli. Dick Gardiner and his older brother Alf had grown up around the Melbourne docks, close mates. When war broke out they were 2,500 kilometres apart, but they both enlisted on the spot. Alf went into the 9th Battalion, Dick joined the 7th. They spent the next months trying to transfer together. Jack and Percy Thompson were working in the timber mills south of Perth when war broke out. Jack was keen to enlist. Percy wasn’t interested. So Jack joined up alone. But in time Percy would fight at Gallipoli as well. The Thompson boys were not big letter-writers, but the story of their Gallipoli was passed on in its own way.
