A fantastic miniseries which was first aired in 2000 on ABC and which i recently bought on dvd, follows a group of 6 Australian prisoners of war in the Changi Japanese prisoner of war camp in Singapore. These friends form a society called the Secret 9 and agree to meet up every 9 years after the war is over.
There is an episode dedicated to each of the friends, which has them as old men look back at something that happened during their time at the camp. Their memories are jogged by the approaching reunion, which is probably the last, and by something that is happening to them in their life.
It shows the importance of mateship in getting you through tough times, and the horrificness of war, and how it brings out the best and worst of people.
I reccomend that everyone watches this
