"Two Hours" ch 7 sat 10:30pm - not in icetv guide
« on: March 14, 2012, 03:10:14 PM »
The icetv guide appears inaccurate as it doesn't have the one hour program "Two Hours" listed for 10:30pm on Sat night.  I have checked on the channel 7 website epguide and it is listed.

Here is more info about the show:

Channel Seven will televise an exclusive behind-the-scenes documentary with unprecedented access on the epic 2011 AFL Grand Final following the NAB Cup Grand Final on Saturday March 17.

The one-hour documentary - entitled ‘Two Hours’ - captures Mick Malthouse’s extraordinary and emotional pre-match address which will get the hair on the back of every footy fan’s neck standing up.

It tells the stories behind the game featuring interviews with Collingwood coach Mick Malthouse and Geelong coach Chris Scott, as well as raw interviews with several players including Geelong captain Cameron Ling, Collingwood captain Nick Maxwell, Steve Johnson, Chris Dawes, Matthew Scarlett, Tom Lonergan, Jimmy Bartel, James Podsiadly, and James Kelly.

Steve Johnson, who was famously in doubt for the match with a “wrenched” knee, candidly reveals the challenges he went through to play in this Grand Final, even concealing the extent of his injury from teammates.

When several players arrived at Johnson’s house in the lead-up to the match, Johnson hid the fact he was icing his knee.

“I had this blow-up ice thing on my knee and I just whipped that straight off and quickly hid it in the corner and answered the door,” he says.

“He was icing up and hid the ice. He’s pretty cagey Stevie,” says Matthew Scarlett.

“I don’t care if I ever walk again, as long as I get this premiership,” Johnson says of his mindset at the time.

Premiership winning Geelong captain and now Channel 7 AFL commentator Cameron Ling says: “Those two hours on Grand Final day changes so many people’s lives.”

AFL Media producer Peter Dickson was granted unparalleled access behind the scenes during the Grand Final and he spent several months interviewing players and coaches involved.

AFL Chief Operating Officer Gillon McLachlan thanked the two clubs, their players and coaches for their co-operation in documenting the story around the 2011 Toyota AFL Grand Final.

“The AFL, through the work of Pete Dickson, is wanting to tell key parts of the history of our game through the words of the people with central roles at the time,” Mr McLachlan said.

“After documenting the 1971, 1981, 1991 and 2001 Grand Finals last year, this documentary fills in the picture of what happened around and behind Geelong’s victory over Collingwood in last year’s Grand Final.

“I can only thank and congratulate the two clubs for their willingness to be involved and their candour around the biggest day on Australian sport,” he said

“This documentary is a wonderful piece of storytelling. The emotional and gripping interviews make this compelling viewing,” said Seven Melbourne Managing Director Lewis Martin.

‘Two Hours’ will premiere Saturday March 17 at 10.30pm in Melbourne, 10pm in Adelaide and 9.50pm in Perth after the NAB Cup Grand Final.

You should be seeing this now. It has been entered as an episode of AFL so that series recordings will pick it up.
