John Farnham meets the Young Talent Team on Holiday
This is a short excerpt from a promotional film for the Caravan Trade and Industries Association. It features the Young Talent Team from Young Talent Time, who are on a caravaning holiday in the country.
John Farnham makes a cameo appearance in one of the holiday parks that the kids stop at along their journey. Young Talent team members featured include Jane Scali, Jamie Redfern, Vikki Broughton and Debra Byrne.
Despite it being only a very brief sequence, we still get to see how comfortable John is in front of the camera delivering lines. And while he is playing himself in this clip, he still manages to display capable acting skills as a caravanning holidaymaker.
Variety show Young Talent Time was popular viewing for Australian kids in the 1970s and '80s. It ran from 1971 to 1988 and was hosted by musician Johnny Young and a changing team of young performers.
