John Doyle on the youth of Rampaging Roy Slaven | 7.30

ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “John Doyle on the youth of Rampaging Roy Slaven | 7.30” – below is their description.

HG Nelson and Roy Slaven have become almost as crucial a part of Australia’s Olympics campaigns as yellow and green tracksuits.

But the man behind Roy Slaven, John Doyle, has just written a book, titled ‘Blessed: The Breakout Year of Rampaging Roy Slaven’ which takes us into a very different part of the Australian legend.

The fictional Roy Slaven is the narrator of the story of the life of a group of teenage boys, including the real life Doyle, as they discover girls, the Beatles and navigate a Catholic education.

Laura Tingle interviews John Doyle.
