Description - Heart of the Game by Michael (Ed) Roberts
45 Years of Football on Television Who could forget the streaker in the 1982 Richmond/Carlton Grand Final, or Malcolm Blight's massive kick after the siren in 1976? What about the Four and Twenty Pies commercial from the 60's or Lou Richards clowning around on World of Sport? Then there was Jezza's legendary grab in the 1970 Grand Final to the call of `Jesaulenko - you Beauty!' Heart of the Game: 45 Years of Football on Television, captures the people, the places, the events, the great marks and the controversial moments that have shaped football in the TV era. Little has changed the face of football as much as the advent of television and the televised game. From the beginning in 1956, to the first live telecast of a VFL Grand Final in 1977, to television today, with 10 to 12 cameras at every game across Australia. Heart of the Game looks at how television has effected the game, and ultimately, the football fan.
