TRACKS OF GLORY

Aspect ratio: 1.33:1

Sound format: Mono

(2 episodes)

The less-than-exciting sport of cycle-racing gets the Australian mini-series treatment in Marcus Cole's TRACKS OF GLORY, set in the early 1900s. As usual with these things, the period is nicely evoked and the script maintains a steady pace, but the drama is too restrained and - with the notable exception of Richard Roxburgh's performance as a flashy sports promoter - the characters aren't terribly interesting. The two leading men, Cameron Daddo and Phil Morris, are attractive and talented, but neither of them is allowed to broaden the range of their muted characterisations.
