Extraordinary changes took place in European art as a result of World War One, with the development of a visual language to express internal trauma and mental anguish. Australian artists such as Albert Tucker drew on this in their responses to the Second World War. One of those who documented the 1939-1945 conflict was official war artist Ivor Hele. His epic pictures of the Middle Eastern and North African campaigns and dark images of New Guinea can be seen in this episode alongside the work of Academy Award winning cinematographer Damien Parer and drawings by concentration camp survivor Bernard Slawik.
