Revealing Gallipoli: Part 1

Revealing Gallipoli: Part 1
49:24 | 2005

Categories: Documentary, History, War

Led by an international team of experts and aided by our unique 3D map of the peninsula the team will identify the exact location, giving a fullness of context to the experiences and stories of who fought and gave their lives in the name of their Empire.The battle on Gallipoli begins not on land, but at sea. The grand plan is to sail a fleet of battleships through the narrow Dardanelles to the very gates of Istanbul, and knock Turkey out of the war. The battleships fail before the massive Turkish forts that guard the Dardanelles. In London, the idea of landing an army to capture the forts begins to take shape.It is poorly planned and under resourced. Among others, we meet a Poet from Dublin, a coal miner from Durham, a railway worker from Port Melbourne and a sixteen year old Turkish farmer.
