Sport on Television

Welcome to the section on Sport & Television. Keep in mind that although Ms Allan, Mr Ryan & Mr Williamson have lovingly contributed to this section, the whole point of a wiki is the collaborative opportunities for us all to be editors. If you find useful resources which add to what we have produced, then get them on the wiki. Also, keep in mind that links to articles across the internet can be annotated using diigo highlights.

Notice that below, we have embedded footage from the 1966 World Cup Final. Why do you think this is such an important sporting clip, given the context of the course you are studying?

Below the clip, you'll find easily navigable links to the main pages on Sport & TV. Each has been categorised under the relevant question for the exam although keep in mind that key concepts and ideas are important for all four questions. In addition, for those of you very keen to see how we will be approaching the next few weeks, check out the SOW (Scheme of Work) at the bottom of the page.
