A story that should be told to our children and our children's children.

A story about an incredibly decent man...

Inspiring documentary! Just such a shame that Norman never got to see it premier, or to know that the Australian Parliament had officially apologized to him.

Fascinating stuff, a bit rough around the edges production wise, but Matt Norman's tribute to his father is a captivating watch.

This film opens the door on Peter Norman, the Australian 200m silver medal winner in Mexico who, because of his support for tommie smith and john Carlos when they made their stand for civil rights during the medal ceremony, was shunned by his own authorities. Archive interviews with the three men (Norman died a few years ago) + archive footage of the three issued to good effect and I discovered, among other things, that Norman's Mexico time would have won the 2000 Olympics and also Australia didn't send any sprinters to the Munich games because they would have had to send Norman (he was the fastest) and he was a "non person" as far as the Australian authorities were concerned. He wasn't invited to any of the Sydney Olympics celebrations by his own country. He had to attend with the Americans!
A good film about a brave group of men.....

A moving and fascinating piece of Olympic history that I'm sure the Olympic committee would rather it wasn't mentioned again, especially after their treatment of 3 fantastic athletes. Recommended viewing.

This was a big part of Australian and American history I was unaware of, I'd seen the famous picture before and knew it was a black power statement but that was it. i was stuck on a bus for 12 hours and this was the highlight for me...Peter Norman was a amazing guy who didn't see colour just people and he knew that wearing that badge was the right thing to do...We lost a great and humble man...I'm glad they made this Documentry about him to show the world who this man was and what he was involved in... I felt very proud knowing an Australian man stood up for what was right...

His story inspires me to be a better person...and help people stand up for what is right no matter what the consequences might be.

A must see for anyone you loves a true and up lifting story...

I as a -relatively new- Australian am interested in everything about Australia... This one opened my eyes to a whole new chapter of Asutralia i never knew much about! Racism, politics, backstabbing, all in "God's Country"!! I know it is -still- rampant in Australia, but this movie shows that not all people in America and Australia are racist. This movie is a 'must watch' for every Australian child, so that they never forget what Peter Norman did!!

A good insight into both the race itself, the politics of the time, and the influence of the Salute on the lives of the three men on the dais. That being said, the final moments were disappointingly overt in their glowing focus on Norman rather than some of the wider issues...or indeed Carlos and Smith who are of course equally interesting characters and whose lives and feelings in relation to how far race relations haven't advanced over the past 40 years would have been far more interesting.
