Episode 06: “Making Peace”
Across land and sea, through two world wars, three generations and umpteen conversations, Megan has been on an epic journey, listening and leaning in to significant conversations about remembrance, its importance and possibilities.
Set against the 2018 Centenary of the Armistice, in this final episode Megan reflects on what she’s learned across the series, from what others have said and by walking in the footsteps of her soldier grandfather.
She speaks to eminent historian Professor Margaret MacMillan and looks at where Australia has come to as a nation with its practice of remembrance. What role does it serve? Do we need to rethink it? Can empathy make a difference? One hundred years after the end of “the war to end all war”, do we take the responsibility of peace seriously enough?
In this emotional final episode of ‘From A Whisper To A Bang!’ Megan also asks: what would Harry make of all this?
