The Games Affair - A Question of Possibility (Episode One)

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1974

Set during the 1974 Commonwealth Games, The Games Affair was a thriller fantasy series for children. Remembered fondly by many who were kids in the 70s, the story follows three teenagers who battle a miscreant professor who's experimenting on athletes with performance enhancing drugs. This first episode include some SFX jumping sheep; John Bach as a blonde, grunting villain, and a youthful Elizabeth McRae. It was NZ telly's first children's serial, the first independently produced long-form drama, and an early credit for producer John Barnett.

The reason why we've all come together for the Games is coz we were all once beaten by Britain ... or something like that.
– Chris Ropata
