'Historyonics this week looks at how the battle on the Gallipoli peninsula has been commemorated through music.

"The Colour of the Earth" is the last track from PJ Harvey's mercury prize winning album from 2011 Let England Shake, and it tells the tale of a little known Anzac battle at a lonely outpost, Chunuk Bair.

How did the acclaimed English musician come across the story of this Anzac battle?

What drew PJ Harvey to look back on the Gallipoli campaign when she was writing Let England Shake almost a century later?'
