John Farnham hosts Ideal Fun Day
John Farnham looks back at highlights from 'Ideal Fun Day', a 10-hour marathon TV show that he hosted to promote children's toys on 15 August 1970 on Channel 7. At the time, it was the largest single marathon broadcast event run by an Australian television station.
This clip is a great example of Farnham's absolute ease in front of the camera. At only 21 years of age he is remarkably comfortable in keeping the pace of the live broadcast moving along, and proves himself to be a confident presenter alongside the likes of other more seasoned professionals like Tony Barber.
