Gallipoli film on select list
5:00AM Thursday February 21, 2008
Pride in the courage of the forces who landed at Anzac Cove helped to form Australia's national identity.

Pride in the courage of the forces who landed at Anzac Cove helped to form Australia's national identity.

The only known cine-film of the 1915 Gallipoli campaign has been added to a selective list of Australia's documentary heritage.

The film - Dardanelles Expedition: Heroes of Gallipoli - was made by English war correspondent Ellis Ashmead-Bartlett in 1915, showing scenes at Anzac Cove, Cape Helles and Suvla Bay.

Only 20 minutes of footage has survived, about one-fifth of the original 3000m of film, due to the unstable nature of early nitrate film stock.

The film has been listed with the Unesco Australian Memory of the World programme, one of 60 similar programmes around the world.

The Australian War Memorial's assistant director, Nola Anderson, says the film is a most significant addition to the register.

"It has outstanding social value and, despite being filmed almost 100 years ago, it still holds great significance for Australians today," she said. "The film is a unique record of the Gallipoli campaign, which is strongly linked with Australia's national identity and our understanding of our history."

The Memory of the World programme lists collection items of cultural significance held in museums, galleries, libraries and archives that document the heritage of human existence.

The register, established in 2000, includes the Endeavour journal of Captain James Cook, the Mabo land rights case manuscripts, landmark constitutional documents and convict transportation records of 1788-1842.
