Episode 60: Breaker Morant

Episode 60: Breaker Morant. We are delighted to be joined by Des Latham, host of The Anglo-Boer War Podcast as we examine this 1980 movie’s depiction of an early 1900s British war crimes trial held in South Africa, little known outside Australia and South Africa but within those countries, a case that still resonates loudly today. Rated 100% by critics on Rotten Tomatoes, superb performances by Edward Woodward, Bryan Brown and Jack Thompson make it an incredibly watchable movie. Our task, expertly assisted by Des, will be to judge its accuracy.

Des Latham’s Anglo-Boer War Podcast can be found on iTunes and other podcast hosting services or through his website which can be found here:

  1. Came here because of Des Lathams’ podcast. I’m a proud South African and also a proud Boer. Very nice website \m/


    1. Thank you Charl and we appreciate your compliment. We’re quite sad as Des’ journey is nearly coming to an end and we’re hoping he starts a new series, maybe going back to the early days of the settling of South Africa by all its current inhabitants. Who knows? In the meantime, we’re still searching for a good movie, preferably with global awareness, concentrating on S African themes. Cheers, M & A
