  1. I thought the promo was in bad taste. It wont be aired for a whole year but they made sure to use Anzac day to cross promo a miniseries.

    Also if they start too early people are going to be sick of it by the time it finally airs. Look what they did with the Schapelle ads.

  2. Today, I have seen this video clip of the sneak peek of Gallipoli and noticed that it was amazing. The music Young and Beautiful by Lana Del Rey caught my attention of this documentary drama miniseries.

  3. just saw the promo on nine 8.30 after TBBT, i was impressed, the choice of song made it quite moving & good timing for Anzac day. I just hope they don’t flood us with the promo for months & put people off.
