Throughout the morning of ANZAC Day, not only will you hear our special dawn service at 5.50, but throughout the morning, a special 13 part series of stories, For Our Country. These vignettes, presented by Hunter Page-Lochard, tell the stories of Indigenous diggers, from the First World War through to the stories of serving more recently in the Solomon Islands and Afghanistan.

At 11.45, 2MCE will broadcast On The Other Side, a dramatic piece produced by The Bathurst Theatre Company. This monologue by Vince Melton is based on archival records from those who fought and died at the Battle of the Nek on 7 August 1915. This moving piece contains language of soldiers experiencing unbearable terror and is not suitable for younger ears. We hope that those unfamiliar with war will understand, as those familiar with war most likely will. Lest We Forget.
