It’s Australia and NZ’s annual day to remember the sacrifice of those who have died for Australia in wars and conflicts.

11 November 2018 marks 100 years since the original armistice, when the guns fell silent on the Western Front in France and Belgium, bringing an end to the four years of hostility known as World War I.

This year stations have access to two special commemorative broadcasts marking this significant event, thanks to Launceston’s City Park Radio.

Centenary of Armistice Remembrance Concert
Prerecorded - available from 7 November

Duration: 2 x 53 minute highlights package.

From Launceston’s majestic Albert Hall comes a concert to mark the Centenary of Armistice, with local and international performances encompassing choir, pipe bands, folk music and Australian Army Buglers. 

Over 200 performers will be on stage including the O’Dowds from Moe, Mick Whittle from Geelong, Dean Cocker and Mick Flannagan from Tasmania and Marian Burns from New Zealand.

See all the performers here.

Distributing to stations in Extras 1 & 2 on Wednesday 7 November, and available for file download.
