Summary This two-part documentary uncovers 50 years' sporting history in Melbourne. Shows how sports changed Melbourne and the lives of Melburnians and their attitudes towards sport. Features some home-grown sporting heroes. Underlines the role of Seven Melbourne in promoting sports throughout these years, initially by the most primitive live telecast. Part one looks at some of the most memorable moments in football, tennis, golf and boxing, taking viewers back nearly half a century. Includes selected archival footage of the original telecast of the 1956 Melbourne Olympics; and other major sporting events in Melbourne.
Part two looks at the evolution of the Brownlow Medal telecast by Channel Seven. It also delves into some 50 years of sports programmes, amongst which are Seasons, League Teams, and best known of all, World of Sport. It includes also seven memorable moments in Melbourne's sporting history. They include the 1966 St. Kilda v. Collingwood football final; John McEnroe v. Mikael Pernfors, 1990 Australian Tennis Open, 4th round; Craig Parry in the 1998 President's Cup, Royal Melbourne; Ted Whitten's final lap of honour, MCG, June 17th 1995; Pat Cash v. Mikael Pernfors in the 1986 Davis Cup final; return of the home town hero, John Famechon to Melbourne, January 1969; and finally, the November 5th 2002 Melbourne Cup, at Flemington, in which Damien Oliver won the cup on Media Puzzle. The common theme throughout this documentary is the celebration of sport in Melbourne, through the eyes of men and women who enrich with their knowledge; entertain with their humour; and colour Melbourne's world through their experiences. Throughout these 50 years, Seven Melbourne has contributed by being 'there' and telecating sporting programmes; and growing alongside Melbourne.
