The second poster promotes the first ever broadcast of New Zealand’s moving memorial service at Chunuk Bair in Gallipoli as part of Maori Television’s ANZAC Day line-up this morning. Judy Bailey and Julian Wilcox today cohost the coverage while Wena Harawira reports from the Gallipoli peninsula on the experiences and emotions of the many New Zealanders that attend the ANZAC services.

The broadcast, Nā Rātou, Mō Tātou Let’s Honour Them Together, crossed live to the dawn service at Te Papaiouru Marae on the shores of Lake Rotorua, the dawn service in Auckland, 2 pm in Gallipoli in Turkey, and 10 pm from Chunuk Bair.
