Watch our full documentary in HD online, narrated by Sam Worthington (Avatar, Terminator Salvation) - http://www.battleoflongtan.com Here is the very moving story that 60 Minutes (Nine Network) Australia did on the Battle of Long Tan. It was broadcast on 13 August 2006, a few days prior to the premiere of my award winning Battle of Long Tan documentary narrated by Sam Worthington (Avatar, Terminator Salvation, Clash of the Titans) on The History Channel.

I tracked down the former Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Long Tan veterans and we interviewed them for our documentary. We were then able to help organise this story for 60 Minutes and it was the first time in 40 years the former enemy had admitted that Australia actually won the battle (but of course lost the war).

The story is called Forgotten Heroes, Producer is Hamish Thomson and the reporter is Peter Harvey.

For three and a half hours in the mud and shattered trees of a rubber plantation called Long Tan, 105 young Australians and 3 New Zealanders fought and defeated 2,500 Viet Cong and North Vietnamese soldiers in an epic battle. 18 Australians were killed and 21 wounded with more than 500 VC and NVA killed with more than 1,000 wounded.
