From the pinnacle of motor sport, to a spectacular new travel series, to a compelling Australian crime drama, Sunday October 7 is the date to remember with three massive new TV events set to launch on Seven.
It starts with live coverage from Mount Panorama of the 50th Anniversary of BATHURST 1000. After Seven News and Sunday Night, comedian Anh Do returns to Vietnam to rediscover the land of his birth in the premiere of ANH DOES VIETNAM. Then David Wenham stars in the free-to-air premiere of KILLING TIME, the true story of disgraced criminal lawyer Andrew Fraser.
From 9.30am: SUPERCHEAP AUTO BATHURST 1000
In 2012, the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 celebrates 50 years of racing. Who will be crowned king of the mountain in one of the largest sporting celebrations in Australia's history? Host Matt White, commentators Neil Crompton and Mark Skaife, and pit reporters Mark Beretta and Mark Larkham bring you all the action from Mount Panorama.
7.30pm: ANH DOES VIETNAM
Experience Vietnam through Anh Do’s eyes as the comedian, actor and best-selling author returns to his homeland in this spectacular travel series. As he journeys from south to north, Anh is seeking to discover just how different his life would have been had his family not escaped the war and moved to Australia when he was two years old. How would he be living in Vietnam and what job would he be doing? Beyond the sights and smells and the extraordinary natural beauty of Vietnam, Anh’s journey will reveal the diverse cultural traditions and history that have formed this indomitable nation.
8.30pm: KILLING TIME
David Wenham stars in the true story of the rise and fall of notorious Melbourne criminal defence lawyer Andrew Fraser. At the top of his game, Fraser commanded a huge salary, representing accused cop killers to the likes of business tycoon Alan Bond and AFL star Jimmy Krakouer. But when his cocaine addiction spiralled into a thousand dollar-a-day habit he crossed the line into the criminal milieu. He was disbarred, discredited, broken financially, his marriage destroyed. This is a fascinating insight into the workings of the Australian justice system in a time of brutal upheaval and a war between the criminal class and corrupt police.
9.30pm: STRIKE BACK
The high-octane thriller starring Australia’s Sullivan Stapleton continues with another action- packed movie-length episode.
