The Best of Live at the Base­ment: Mor­ris, Cot­ton, Keays, 10am, ABC1

Psst. Wanna feel like it’s 1969 again with­out be­ing part of one of those gi­nor­mous Count­down nos­tal­gia spec­tac­u­lars? Then tune in this morn­ing to see Rus­sell, Dar­ryl and Jim do their nos­tal­gia thing, prac­ti­cally in private.

The Club, 8.30pm, ABC2

David Wil­liamson’s screen­play from his play of the same name for this 1980 film about an AFL club holds up re­ally well. Not so the short­est footy shorts you’ve seen, which look prac­ti­cally ob­scene. It’s won­der­ful to see a fit young John Howard as Ge­off Hay­ward, ‘‘ the best player to come out of Tas­ma­nia since Dar­rel Bal­dock’’, and Gra­ham Kennedy in one his strong­est straight roles as club pres­i­dent Ted Parker. Re­viewed times and the movie sched­ules above are shown in AEDT. Times in other states are pro­vided in the guide pages op­po­site.
