Charles Bean's Great War DVD

In this dramatised documentary, Charles Bean, respected reporter and writer, tells us all about his remarkable life.

After graduating from Oxford University, Bean began work with the Sydney Morning Herald as a leading feature writer before being selected as official war correspondent in 1914.

Bean was so inspired by the Australian troops that he made it his life's work to tell their story to the Australian public. The result was a monumental twelve volume history that is still recognised as one of the best histories of the Great War ever written.

Bean's commitment led him to being instrumental in the establishment of the Australian War Memorial and leaving us perhaps the greatest legacy that any country could have - a sense of what it is to be Australian.
