Introduction to Week 4

Rebecca Wheatley introduces the theme of War Wounds.
REBECCA WHEATLEY: Welcome to week four of the 100 stories. This week, the stories look at the way the war damaged men and women both physically and psychologically. We’ll be speaking with Jay Winter, an expert on shell shock, we’ll show you how to retrieve historical newspaper accounts online, and find moving archival footage on the web as well. But let’s cross to Bruce on the ridges of Gallipoli, where the war for Australia and New Zealand began.

Watch Rebecca Wheatley introduce the theme of War Wounds and the issues you’ll explore this week.
