“Kick it to the boundary line”. These are the famous words of Ted Whitten in the commentary box late in the last quarter of the 1966 Grand Final between St Kilda and Collingwood. This was the classic battle between the powerhouse of Collingwood and its rich successful history against a club riddled with failure who had never tasted Premiership success. With only one point separating the teams at the final siren – it is still to this day one of the all-time great football stories.
This highly emotional documentary captures the incredible life stories of that famous day including rarely seen footage of the time, including the late Daryl Baldock emotionally recounting his day as the St Kilda captain. Combined with the fire of Allan Jeans’ audio at three-quarter time this is truly a spine tingling look back for all football fans.
Relive this encounter as Cowboy Neale, Barry Breen, Brian Sierakowski, Ian Synman, Des Tuddenham, Kevin Rose, Wayne Richardson and others tell the players’ story of the pain and jubilation in ‘1966’ The Final Story.
Produced to appeal to all football lovers no matter who they support – this portrayal of such an historic day is about the impact, both positive and negative, that such a day has on the lives of those involved.
