A colleague here has recently alerted me to this online clip of the charge at Beersheba as recreated for the film Forty Thousand Horsemen.
We have a few interesting public talks and a film screening before the end of the year. Here is all the information you'll need. The Telstra Theatre is inside the Memorial, on the lower ground floor.
September was a really busy month for us. We all had to meet deadlines for text, get the initial design concepts endorsed by management and write essays for magazines and our catalogue. So, just in case you are interested in what has gone on so far, here is a pretty comprehensive listing of the process and a few images we have taken along the way.
Several senior staff from the Memorial viewed the IWM Lawrence of Arabia: The life, the legend exhibition in London.
Well, at least something we were not allowed to borrow . . .
A while back, one of our regular readers was talking to me about what we were doing and expressed some surprise at what effort is going into this exhibition. He said that he thought we just went out the back and grabbed things to put into cabinets and presto, an exhibition is born. Well, words to that effect. Others have emailed me recently about being interested in what goes into putting our exhibitions together.
A while back, actually a long while back, I promised to enlighten you about a couple of inspiring things that I saw in London in 2006 during my visits to view the IWM's Lawrence of Arabia, the Life, the Legend exhibition and to negotiate our UK loans. So after a long delay and absolutely no requests to read the second part of my story, here it is.
