Not a great look at the SCG.
The Final Quarter, a film delving through the final three years of AFL player Adam Goodes’ career and the issues that surrounded it, will premiere on Australian television this evening. This is The Roar’s guide to watching it on TV, or streaming it live online.
The film will be shown at 7:30pm (AEST) on Thursday, July 18 with Channel Ten picking up the rights to show it.
UPDATE: If you missed the live broadcast of The Final Quarter, you can watch the documentary in full on TenPlay, where it will be available to stream until August 17, 2019.
Adam Goodes was a champion AFL player for the Sydney Swans, however, his career became a beacon for so much more than just footy as he called out racism and was named Australian of the year.
Goodes and his actions became the subject of intense debate around Australia, and the film aims to show the story of Goodes using only archival footage from the time.
Directly from the film’s website, the aim is also to allow Australians to reconsider.
“The film holds a mirror to Australia and is an opportunity to reconsider what happened on and off the football field.”
As mentioned, Channel 10 have picked up the rights to show the film, and it will be shown from 7:30pm (AEST) this evening.
It’ll be broadcast on their main channel at the conclusion of The Project, and is expected to run for 1 hour and 40 minutes – meaning it’ll wrap up at 9:10pm (AEST).
If you’d prefer to stream the action on the small screen, then you’ll be able to do so through TenPlau, which is the official live streaming application of Network Ten.
This is a free service to use, however, it will require you to sign up with a valid email address.
