That is interesting. At first I thought of The Two Georges, but in this one not only was the war fought and lost, but we are still fighting for independence-- presumably not in an all-out war, if it says the war was lost. Definitely an odd project for ABC.
I wonder what the reaction will be if the ongoing war is basically a terrorist front fighting against the British regime ruling the colonies.
The modern day rebels using IRA, Al Qaeda/Hezbollah tactics.
