Saturday 29 September 1973 — MELBOURNE

VFL Grand Final Day and live coverage is banned within Victoria. ABC has to resort to Gaelic Football, Lawn Bowls and Golf to fill the afternoon between Grand Final updates, and HSV7 schedules an afternoon of imported sport-related movies. Delayed coverage of the Grand Final follows later in the evening on ABC, HSV7 and GTV9.
