Did they televise Division 2 GF's? I'm looking for 79 and 81. Actually, any Camberwell games would be nice.

1979 was a crossover telecast. 1981 was not televisded by channel 0. Channel first televised VFA football in 1967. They televised a Saturday arvo game every week which was a second divsion game and on Sunday televised a first division game. The first 2 weeks of the season they did 2nd Division on both days as the 1st Divsion season started 2 weeks later. Channel also did some practice matches as they did a Preston v Eaglehawk match in 1971. Lightning premiership matches which were held during the vfa finals for teams that were not in the finals were telecast during the finals series. Escort and Ardath Cup matches as well as the 1977 McWilliams Centenary Cup were also done by ten. Throw in rep games like the VFA v O&M FL at North Albury in 1975. When channel first televised the Saturday arvo games they also had live crosses to the races (country vic meetings). Tracks that have long gone and had TAB meetings which included Woodend, Heathcote, Bacchus Marsh and Rochester. It was in 1957 that the first ever VFA match televised and that was by the ABC. Oakleigh v Mordialloc match was the first match I think. Will check that.

I've put highlights up on the main page from the 1980 Grand Final (from the 6 Days of History Port Melbourne tape). I'd appreciate some feedback as to whether the video plays (at all) if its smooth, if you get errors during playback etc. It should play without asking to, or having to download special software.

 


* It's time to restore the VFA name.

NorthPort,

Can I get a copy of the 1981 Sandringham Grand Final. I will pay the cost of copying and postage.

Cheers
