Summary This four part series, directed by Steve Thomas and produced by Kath Symmons, looks at how four rural communities are keeping Australian football alive and kicking in the bush. The Tamar Cats were born out of the amalgamation between arch rivals, Beaconsfield and Beauty Point, two Northern Tasmanian towns separated by five kilometres and a world of tradition. The club's fortunes over the past few years have not been good and this has led to a decline in both attendances and the amenities. We follow a new committee led by President Paul Filgate and Vice Presidents Chris Love and Daryl Murfett as they attempt to revive the Cats as a force in the competition. Victor Marshall is the new coach appointed to lead the team's on-field revival. His efforts go unrewarded as the team struggles to meet his demands early in the season. Eventually his persistence pays off and the team 'clicks', stringing together six wins in a row. Things are looking good but there's trouble behind the scenes - Victor's aggressive style of coaching is becoming a problem. This episode brings us face to face with a clash between family values and on-field aggression. It's a fascinating dilemma resolved by a bloodless coaching coup. (Commissioned by SBSi, in English) (Documentary Series) (Part 3 of 6).
