Did the FREEMAN doco ruin the race that really stopped the nation? | TV Bingebox S01E27

Remember the time the entire nation held its collective breath for 49 seconds?

The Sydney 2000 Olympic Games welcomed the world into the new millennium and we all enjoyed 15 days of world-class athleticism. Many medals were won by Aussies at these game, yet none more significant than the Women’s 400m battle that saw Cathy Freeman triumph… so why not celebrate it with a documentary about her journey and what that medal meant to a nation still struggling with its indigenous identity?

Join Jo, Dan, Brooky and Molk as we give you some great tips, hints on shows to watch and those to give a wide berth to as we land squarely in the TV Bingebox!

In this episode we cover off:

  • Our Clap or Slap shows (ones we’ve been loving and others we’ve had the misfortune to watch), including: Studio 10 (10), Geordie Shore (MTV), Eastenders (UKTV), The Split (ABC), The All New Monty: Guys and Gals (Seven), The Masked Singer Australia Finale (10), HYBPA (10), The Block (Nine), Raised By Wolves (FOX SHOWCASE), The Circus (Stan), Rise of the Murdoch Dynasty (ABC), The Great (Stan), Halifax (Nine), I May Destroy You (FOX SHOWCASE), Line of Duty (Stan), Real Housewives of New York (HayU), Midnight Cowboy (Stan), The Green Mile Amazon Prime Video), Get Organized with The Home Edit (Netflix), Robin’s Wish (iTunes);
  • FREEMAN (ABC) is this week’s #GroupBinge – an incredible story well told; and
  • Jo gives us a blinder of a #Rewind – do you remember when you first saw THE YOUNG RIDERS (Amazon Prime Video)? Most of us didn’t.
