Skip to 0 minutes and 4 seconds LAURA JAMES: Welcome to week five of the 100 stories. This week, we’ll be considering the politics of war and how it divided Australia and New Zealand both during and after the fighting. We’ll be talking to Al Thomson, one of the first historians to consult the repatriation records, and we’ll be looking at this archive online as well. But first, we go to the Somme, the location of one of the most catastrophic events of the First World War.
Introduction to week 5
Laura James introduces the theme of The Old Lie and the stories and issues you’ll explore this week.
