Here is the amazing and moving story that 60 Minutes Australia did on the Battle of Long Tan which was broadcast on 13 August 2006, a few days prior to the premiere of my award winning documentary (16 August 2006) which I made for the 40th Anniversary of the battle which was on 18 August 2006.
The story is called Forgotten Heroes and the Producer is Hamish Thomson and the reporter is Peter Harvey.
105 young Australians and 3 New Zealanders fought and defeated 2,500 Viet Cong and North Vietnamese soldiers in a rubber plantation called Long Tan in South Vietnam for some three and a half hours. 18 Australians were killed and 21 wounded and more than 500 VC and NVA were killed with more than 1,000 wounded.
