Samuel Johnson lives, breathes and is Molly Meldrum in this two- part biopic. I grew up watching Countdown, but even if you’d never seen a single episode, the tale of how Meldrum shaped the Australian music industry – and broke some of our biggest stars – is a totally engrossing watch. Add an excellent supporting cast and you may have the biggest TV hit of 2016.
