Deadline Gallipoli is a 2015 Australian miniseries. The Entente occupy the Turkish peninsula Gallipoli to use as a base for the conquest of the Ottoman capital Constantinople and send a garrison of volunteer but inexperienced Australian and New Zealand soldiers. But the landing campaign will be a dramatic battle as the Turkish army fights more violently than expected.
The four war correspondents Charles Bean (Joel Jackson), Ellis Ashmead Bartlett (Hugh Dancy), Phillip Schuler (Sam Worthington) and Keith Murdoch (Ewen Leslie) are soon faced with the moral dilemma of writing pathetic news to neither the soldiers in the homeland nor demoralize them at the front, or to make an honest report of a brutal slaughter against the will of the highest military.
