Very compelling and well-made doco about a recent and shameful part of our sporting history. It was interesting to see a variety of sides of Adam and the talking heads were all good - especially Gilbert McAdam and Michael O'Loughlin. My only criticism is that I couldn't really see the point in giving Andrew Bolt a platform. I hope this educates many and changes some perspectives.
