This has also just been released this week for digital purchase and rental. Sadly for Channel 7 that is likely the preferred way I’ll watch this. I’m sure it will rate through the roof like the John Farnham doco though (which was very good).

Depending on what rights Seven has to this, is there any chance this may end up on a streaming platform before it screens on Seven?

It’s already out to physically buy as well as digitally to rent or buy, but doubtful Seven would be trumpeting this as a marquee title for 2024 if they didn’t have the next window sewn up :man_shrugging:t2:

What are the chances of it going on a streaming platform before going on channel 7 though?

This also got a small (but still decent for an Aussie indie doco) theatrical release. Is Seven really pumping this up as a 2024 title when it’s really just a movie they have the rights to show in a faster window…?

No more than the John Farnham or Jimmy Barnes docos they have screened before.
