I have just returned from watching a preview of 'The Tragedy of the Montevideo Maru’. It is a powerful documentary, magically weaving together what happened in New Guinea and South-east Asia.

It gets the story of the Montevideo Maru out there – there will be no excuse for ignorance after this!

It is informative and impassioned, capturing the spirit of this enormous human tragedy. Testament to this was that everyone continued to sit and absorb the impact of it for several minutes after it ended.

John Schindler is to be congratulated for his enormous achievement.

I was privileged to pick up Dr Rowley Richards up and take him to the screening. A survivor of Changi, the Burma Railway and the sinking of the Rakuyo Maru he is certainly one of our most dignified and inspirational Australians.

Keith – thank you, so much, for the all the work you have put ino the submission too. It is an amazing achievement and I feel we, the family members touched by the Montevideo Maru, are on a new and exciting path of recognition for the men who disappeared.

What a special Remembrance Day this is!

Thank you Keith. All systems ready to go here tonight at 6.30 local time.

I wonder how many Queenslanders will miss the first hour because of daylight saving time. The History Channel has been failing to address this fact.
