Answered By Fire on ABC 8:30pm Sunday, May 28, 2006

28 May

David Wenham makes his much anticipated return to ABC TV in this dramatic story based on true events. In 1999, a group of Australian police joined other volunteers on the United Nations mission to East Timor. Their job was to oversee the country’s vote on independence from Indonesia. The UN promised the East Timorese they would stay after the vote, regardless of what happened… It was a promise they couldn’t keep. The two-part mini-series, Answered by Fire begins Sunday 28 May, 8.30pm on ABC TV.

How spooky is that! I’ll be watching; it looks really good.

I endorse our current commitment to East Timor, but see the redoubtable Hamish McDonald, How we brought this crisis on ourselves.

    it was a very good mini-series, the acting and the venue was so authentic that i as a Timorese and my wife who has visited East Timor found it to be so real. The mini-series, acting and the overall production was very touching and emotional.

    The exposure of the events in that tiny nation will give people more awareness of the plight of the East Timorese.

    Many thanks
