RIP. John Wilson

RIP Bill Collins. He was one of my gateways into good movies. He had kind of a staid persona but played a lot of genuinely great films.

Same here. Always liked his preview of films on Ch 10 (long time ago) and then Fox Classics.

Remembering his 'larger' frame from before to a meagre one nowadays, easily shows how a person's health declines. Sad to see this.

RIP Bill.

Have others heard the hilarious interview when 3AW called the wrong bill Collins to discuss a particular movie. Took several minutes for them to work out they were speaking to the race caller...

I too loved Bill’s movie reviews. Helped form my viewing preferences.

RIP Peter MacNamara - one half of the two Maccas, along with Paul MacNamee.

One of the greatest doubles teams of all time.

RIP, one of our greatest tennis players.
Yeh, RIP supermac.

Good player but rarely in mix in grand slam singles so one of our greatest a bit of a stretch. A great in terms of sportsmanship going by the respect he has in tennis world though.
