The Hall of Memory is the heart of the Australian War Memorial. Its Byzantine dome covers 15 stained-glass windows and world-renowned mosaic, cloaking the Tomb of the Unknown Australian Soldier.
Presented by the Memorial's Director Dr Brendan Nelson, this new documentary explores the stunning designs of artist Napier Waller OBE CMG and explains the intent behind the 15 stained-glass panels, each of which symbolises one of the quintessential qualities displayed by Australians in war.
Hall of Memory - values and character was produced by renowned journalist and film-maker Max Uechtritz, and scored by songwriter and record producer Garth Porter. This documentary was made possible through a generous donation from Michael and Katherine Ribot de Bressac.
