dc.description.abstract 1. Accomplices in Atrocity. The Indonesian killings of 1965 http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/hindsight/accomplices-in-atrocity-the-indonesian-killings-of/3182630 One of the worst mass murders of the later 20th century happened on our doorstep -- yet few Australians know about it. In late 1965, the Indonesian army orchestrated the killing of half a million communists and suspected sympathisers in reprisal for what they claimed was an attempted Communist coup. Historians who've studied thousands of declassified Australian, British and American documents say they reveal a shocking truth: the Western powers not only knew about the killings, but were accomplices in atrocity. This program includes original research on undertaken by the author/producer on Australiaâs knowledge of the mass killings using declassified documents from the Department of External Affairs held in the National Archives of Australia http://naa12.naa.gov.au/scripts/Imagine.asp?B=583616&I=1&SE=1 Sunday 7 Sep 2008 2. Australia's Secret War with Indonesia http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/hindsight/australias-secret-war-with-indonesia/3242880 In 1965/66, Australian troops fought a covert war inside Indonesian territory in Borneo. The Australian public was not told about these cross-border operations. In fact, they were kept so secret that only a handful of Cabinet Minister knew of their existence. The soldiers themselves were under strict instructions to tell no-one - not even their wives. They kept the secret for 30 years. This program features extensive original interviews with soldiers and commanding officers who took part in the top secret operation, and with leading Australian historians.
