Actors and Heroes : My Brother Jack and the Great War on Television Anne Pender , 2015 single work criticism
— Appears in: Metro Magazine , Autumn no. 184 2015; (p. 96-101)

'It has been fifty years since the ABC adapted George Johnston's novel 'My brother Jack' for the small screen. With commemorations of World War I at the forefront of Australia's national agenda for 2015, Anne Pender asserts that the series, along with network ten's telemovie adaptation of the same novel, is worthy of renewed attention.'
