Saturday 25 September 1976 — MELBOURNE

The VFL Grand Final is played in Melbourne but telecast into Melbourne is still restricted to evening replay telecasts — although HSV7’s Football Marathon, featuring footage of previous Grand Finals, and telecast of the North Melbourne Breakfast are already entrenched as Grand Final traditions.
