Inspired by the book by Peter Grose, this fascinating documentary was produced to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Japanese attack. Drawing on long-hidden documents, and incorporating rarely-seen archival footage, eyewitness accounts from survivors and expert commentary, The bombing of Darwin reveals the true story surrounding the attack, as well as the disturbing events that occurred in the aftermath.
