The Screen Guide

In November 1941, HMAS Sydney was sunk with no survivors by the German ship 'The Kormoran'. A controversy has been raging ever since. Was a war crime committed? Was there an international cover-up? Were the Japanese involved (it happened two weeks before Pearl Harbour)? A powerful, controversial documentary.
