    In the great Australian spirit of courage and high adventure comes a true blue legend, from the creators of Phar Lap and The Man From Snowy River. Four gallant men of the Australian Light Horse Regiment are thrust into the last great cavalry charge when the British campaign in Palestine becomes a stalemate in 1917. In a desperate attempt to aid the Allies' cause 800 young Australian horsemen set off against gunfire and insurmountable odds in a last ditch attempt to save the attacking British soldiers from imminent annihilation by the Turco-German Army.

    Featuring Jon Blake (ANZACS), Peter Phelps (Lantana), Gary Sweet (The Tracker), Bill Kerr (Gallipoli), Gerard Kennedy (Against The Wind), Anthony Andrews (Brideshead Revisited), Sigrid Thornton (The Man From Snowy River) and with a crisp new high definition transfer epically framed by Academy Award® winning cinematographer Dean Semler, The Lighthorsemen is an action-packed heroic gallop into Australia's wartime history.
