My all time favourite tv series… sad indeed.


Sir Roger Bannister, the first man to officially break the four minute mile, has died aged 88.


The guy that inspired Chariots of Fire?


In 1924? He was 88 not 120.


No, Bannister and the Australian runner John Landy competed against each other, with Landy being the second man to break the four minute mile. Landy was also the Governor of Victoria between 2001 and 2006.


Chariots of Fire was about Eric Liddell and Harold Abrahams. Liddell went on to become a missionary and died in a Japanese internment camp. I think Abrahams later turned professional. Both were sprinters.


Vale Jeff St John, great guitarist and singer. Wheelchair bound but could get a place get very lively.

So lucky to have lived through the Australian music scene of the late 1960’s and 1970’s. Pub music on all over the place, and great Bands like Jeff St John and Copperwine, Fraternity, Black Feather, The Valentines, Sidewinder and many more.
