Charles Bean’s Great War started filming in and around Williamstown last week covering significant moments in his life both pre and post war.

Careful casting has seen all of us amazed at the likeness that Nick Farnell carries for Bean and Nick has certainly thrown himself entirely into the role.

The production moves on to the war years next week with purpose built trenches and a swag of circa WWI uniforms, guns, hats and haircuts.

Charles Bean’s Great War is playing on the History Channel in November.
