Summary

From the ABC news websites 'indepth' stories list - "This is the story of a one-in-a-million encounter on the South China Sea, where unlikely saviours and the saved became friends, forging a bond that endures to this day. When HMAS Melbourne and its 1,300 crew rescued 99 Vietnamese refugees from a sinking boat in 1981, the outcome was a new life in Australia for many of those refugees, as well as life-changing consequences for some of the rescuers."
