Mr John Clarke

In this series of three x 1 hour episodes, written and presented by John, we chart the history and development of Australia’s relationship with sport, through the good times and the bad. We see why sport was so important and we follow Australia’s rise to international fame through the 1950s and 60s. We then travel with it into the valleys of darkness and failure as the world was changing during the late 70s and 80s. We follow the rebuild, we see the rise and commercialisation of televised domestic sport and we hear from legendary sporting heroes. We learn what they did and we learn how they did it. (This show has the best cast in television).
