ANZAC Day 2004 – Live reports from Gallipoli

Radiowise Media Networks’ Joint CEO, Peter Rubinstein, will be travelling to Gallipoli this year and is available to do live reports for non-competing stations in the day/s leading up to and including ANZAC Day.

Peter has spent many hundreds of hours over the past decade interviewing close to 100 of our Gallipoli and World War One veterans, and has been responsible for creating a number of RAWARD winning programs.

“Preserving this important aspect of Australia’s history and hearing it on vast numbers of stations has been, perhaps, the most rewarding aspect of our company’s work”, said Mr Rubinstein.

Most stations will remember the work Radiowise produced on the passing of Alec Campbell, who died in May 2002 at the age of 103. Radiowise created several programs for different networks including several mini-documentaries – voiced by, amongst others, John Laws and Bud Tingwell. Collectively, these programs were broadcast by over 200 stations, many reporting exceptional feedback from listeners.

“While Alec Campbell was the last survivor among those who actually served on the beach at Gallipoli, there are six WW1 veterans still living today”, said Mr Rubinstein, “ And I’ve been privileged to have interviewed all six of them.”

Peter will also be interviewing many of the young (and not so young) fellow travellers who will this year make the journey to Gallipoli for this unique day of service and reflection.

Live reports with Peter can be arranged, as well as with many of the people who will be travelling with him or some of the scores of backpackers that he will bump into on the Gallipoli Peninsula.

If your station is interested in live report/s from Gallipoli, call Peter Rubinstein or Sasha Kahan at Radiowise on (02) 9438 4000.
