PETER ALLEN: NOT THE BOY NEXT DOOR

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - WATCH ON PRESTO - WITH DEB­BIE SCHIPP

8.40PM, SEVEN

Ri­otous and sober­ing story of the kid who be­came a con­flicted Aus­tralian icon. Peter Allen – played as a boy by Ky Bald­win and as an adult by Joel Jack­son (above) – al­ways stood out. Prodi­giously tal­ented, his mother (Re­becca Gib­ney) is his big­gest sup­porter, his fa­ther an al­co­holic. He leaves home at 14, is dis­cov­ered by Judy Gar­land (Si­grid Thorn­ton) and mar­ries her daugh­ter Liza Min­nelli (Sara West). It’s a fairy­tale. Un­til it isn’t.
