Australia in Colour: Shifting Allegiances
Shifting Allegiances
Episode 2  |  SBS  |  March 13, 2019

Sport and comedy offer some relief from the hunger and hopelessness of the Great Depression - at least until war breaks out. Australia sends troops to Europe to fight beside Britain, but when Japan invades Pearl Harbor, the nation turns to America for protection and pulls troops out of the Middle East. Fighting reaches Darwin.
