From Jack Brabham and Evonne Goolagong Cawley to Ash Barty and Cadel Evans, this pantheon of Aussie greats also includes illuminating interviews with John Bertrand, Michelle Payne and Jessica Watson. An old footy rival gets a guernsey too – with Sheedy honouring Denis Pagan, the former player and coach who reinvented himself as a horse trainer and won the Australian Derby at his first attempt.
