'This is the amazing true story of fifteen Australian soldiers who refused to surrender when the Japanese steamrolled down the Malayan Peninsula early in 1942. Their will to survive and evade capture would lead them on a remarkable journey back to Australia - frought with starvation, illness, adversity and great hardship.
On arrival in Australia several months later, there were few greetings, no decorations - but disbelief. They were considered deserters and given the title, 'The Malayan Harriers'.
Now in 1990, there are only nine of the original fifteen men remaining. It is time their story was told.'
