Olympic Gala (1984.07.28)

oly01

This show was aired the day the Summer Olympics in Los Angeles opened. Several artists performed : Placido Domingo, the Beach Boys, Neil Diamond and, of course, Olivia Newton-John. In a segment taped in Sydney, she was joined by Australian actor Paul Hogan to wish the athetes luck (especially the aussies !).

Olivia then performed a medley of I Still Call Australia Home and Waltzing Matilda backed by two children's choirs and the Military District Band. It actually looks more like a music video, with a long musical bridge where footage of Australian athletes is shown, as well as beautiful Australian scenery. It ends with nice long shots while Olivia hold that note.
