On international battlefields, through archive and re-enactment we search for the greatest Australian icon: The Digger. At the end of the nineteenth century soldiers from Australia came under fire in Africa – they were the first of one and a quarter million Australian men and women to serve their country in war and conflict and in every continent except the one they called home. The chronicle of Australia’s soldiers from then till now is full of heroism, humour, mateship and larrikinism. Presented by Neil Pigot, The Digger is a feature documentary commissioned by FOXTEL’s History Channel and supported by Screen Australia and The ACT Government with ScreenACT.
