Bill Roycroft photo

Olympic Equestrian, Born 1915, Flowerdale Vic
Bill Roycroft, gold medal Olympic equestrian, is a wonderful example of a type of Australian who may well be disappearing. In the tradition of the Man from Snowy River and other Australian rural heroes, his courage, loyalty, laconic bush humour and, above all, his capacity to endure are well displayed in this enthralling television portrait of a great Australian horseman.
