Sunday 18 July 1965, VFA 12 11 83 v Tasmania 11 10 76, at Toorak Park, televised by ABC.
I didn't see the telecast as I was at the match.

I was also at the match and the VFA nearly threw the match away with bad kicking at goal.The VFA had to play with 18 men and that was one of the reasons that Dennis Oakley was playing wing he kicked a great goal late in the last qtr on the run from the half forward line on the outer grandstand end

Does anyone have a list of the 1981 telecast matches?

 

Even better than that, does anyone have copies of matches other than the Sandy-Port game at Beach Road and the Grand Final?

 

I am starting work on a book about season 1981 and I would like to have some in-depth match reports in amongst all the details.

There is a few televised games around. Frankston v coburg, Frankston v dandenong, port Melbourne v dandenong, port Melbourne v Preston, port Melbourne v coburg at a guess from the 1981 home and away season.

You can add Camberwell v Waverley 2nd div gf to that list although no sound to this game.
