Tomorrow is the centenary of the Gallipoli landings during World War One – the original Anzac Day. To mark the occasion, we have five sets of the ‘Anzac Girls’ series to give to Nurse Uncut readers, plus 10 double tickets to see ‘Testament of Youth’, a film starring Alicia Vikander and Kit Harington, based on the diary of Vera Brittain, an English war nurse.
The inadequacy of medical facilities and supplies and shambolic mismanagement of casualties at Anzac Cove prompted two Australian nurses to label the situation “mass murder”. Neither Anzac Girls nor Testament of Youth shies away from the horrors the war nurses had to deal with, as well as their personal crises.
ANZAC Girls is a six-part series which follows the stories of young nurses who found themselves in unimaginably tough situations – and rose to the challenge.
Testament of Youth is a beautiful, powerful film based on the diaries of Vera Brittain, who lost her brother, fiance and close friends in the war and went on to become a leading pacifist in Britain.
We have five copies of ANZAC Girls to give to Nurse Uncut readers*, courtesy of Roadshow Entertainment. Apart from the six episodes, each DVD includes special features such as the making of ANZAC Girls, the casting and main characters, costume design, make-up and hair, the men of the series and cast interviews.
We also have 10 double passes to see Testament of Youth*, courtesy of Transmission Films, which is currently screening widely across NSW.
