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.
