ABC to broadcast services from Australia, Turkey and France for ANZAC DAY 2019
The ABC has a proud history as broadcast partner of Anzac Day services and in 2019 invite you to share in the spirit of the occasion.
On Thursday 25 April, ABC will be broadcasting Anzac Day events and providing coverage across the ABC on TV, Radio, iview and online.
ABC’s TV coverage will coordinate the key commemorative Anzac Day events from Australia, Turkey and France.
From 4.30am AEST, ABC will broadcast the Anzac Dawn Service from Sydney, followed by the Anzac Dawn Service from Canberra at 5:30am AEST. This will be followed from 8:45am AEST with live local coverages of marches in all State and Territory capital cities.
At 12:30pm AEST, the Gallipoli Dawn Service will commence from the Anzac Commemorative site at ANZAC Cove in Turkey. The cove is on the Gallipoli Peninsula and following the landing, became the main base for the Australian and New Zealand troops during the 8-month campaign.
At 1:30pm AEST, watch the Anzac Day Dawn Service from the Australian National Memorial in Villers-Bretonneux – the French town that was re-captured by the Australians on Anzac Day in 1918.
As is customary, the Anzac Day Address by the Governor-General, His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC, will be broadcast nationally immediately before the ABC evening news bulletin at 7pm.
Additionally, ABC iview will feature a special collection of Anzac Day short stories available from Thursday 18 April.
