Deep from within the Channel Nine archives comes Fifty Years of Television, a collection of insightful and entertaining clips representing some of the most memorable moments in Australian television history. From the entertainers, to the news makers, the comedy to the pathos – a decade of achievements and anecdotes unravels before your very eyes:
In The Sexy Seventies TV stalwarts featured include: Ernie Sigley and Denise Drysdale, Graham Kennedy and Bert Newton, the one and only Lanky Yank Don Lane and a very young Daryl Sommers and Ossie Ostrich. Also covered is the rise and fall of Gough Whitlam, a classic interview with ACTU President (and future Prime Minister) Bob Hawke, the tragic devastation of Cyclone Tracy as well as the revolutionary World Series Cricket. There are also great Logies moments with Bert Newton, Norman Gunston and even the cast of Number 96!
