Lost In Libya – Excerpts from documentary about New Zealand's Long Desert Patrol Group during WW2. Winner “Best Original Music in General Television”, 2009 Qantas Film and Television Awards, New Zealand

Lost in Libya (12' Excerpt)

This documentary follows three amateur historians into the heart of the Libyan Sahara as they track the path of Kiwis in ‘T Patrol’, a unit of World War II’s legendary Long Range Desert Group. The LRDG braved extreme heat and desert conditions to launch surprise raids — in converted Chevrolets — deep behind enemy lines. In this excerpt the history hunters make their way to Murzuk, the scene of a raid on an Italian air base. It contains the only extant footage of the desert group in action, and surviving members of the patrol recall events and the LRDG’s ethos.
