VET­ER­ANS HON­OURED

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Don't miss this week -

COME to spot Prince Harry and his new bride, Meghan. Stay for the in­spi­ra­tional per­for­mances and phys­i­cal­ity of the com­peti­tors in these, the fourth In­vic­tus Games.

Chris Bath will host the open­ing cer­e­mony cov­er­age from the Syd­ney Opera House, joined in com­men­tary by Par­a­lympic su­per­hero, Dy­lan Al­cott, An­thony “Lehmo” Lehmann and mil­i­tary ex­pert, Cur­tis McGrath. ABC’s cov­er­age of the Games will be pre­ceded by a spe­cial

(8pm, Mon); a one-hour doc­u­men­tary about Aus­tralia’s wheel­chair rugby team (8.30pm, Tues); and ob-doco, (8.30pm, Thurs), which fol­lows a joint team of Bri­tish and Aussie vet­er­ans on a trek across Western Aus­tralia’s chal­leng­ing Kim­ber­ley re­gion.

The In­vic­tus ini­tia­tive is one which cel­e­brates the hu­man spirit, but also pro­vides a rare op­por­tu­nity for us mere mor­tals to hero wor­ship the brave ser­vice­men and women, who sac­ri­fice so much for such lit­tle recog­ni­tion. Let the spot­light shine bright and long.
