Charles Cousens and Tokyo Rose

9th February 2015

In 1942, the supposedly unconquerable island Singapore falls to the Imperial Japanese Army and 80,000 allied soldiers are taken prisoner. One of the POWs is Australian 2GB presenter Charles Cousens, the host of popular radio shows including “Reflections in a Wineglass,” “Feminine Charm from a Masculine Viewpoint” and “Slumber Music.” Taken from a camp in Burma to Radio Tokyo headquarters, Cousens is forced to use his talents for radio to broadcast Japanese propaganda at allied troops.
