About the Show
“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does” – Nelson Mandela (1918-2013)
From the first match of Australian football in 1858, to Russell Drysdale’s iconic painting The Cricketers, to Cathy Freeman’s bursting run in the 2000 Olympics, sport is undeniably a significant part of Australian history and society. But what role does sport actually play in our modern culture? Is there a purpose beyond the results each weekend?
Join the beloved Bulldogs captains Bob Murphy and Katie Brennan for an evening exploring the power of sport to drive positive social change, hosted by award-winning sports journalist Caroline Wilson.
