Blink TV are proud to have co-produced ‘John Farnham: Finding The Voice’ with Beyond Entertainment. The feature length documentary has received wide critical acclaim as well asincredible box office success after its cinema release.
The definitive theatrical documentary of John Farnham, Australia’s greatest singer. The program follows his journey from the innocent suburbs of Melbourne to 60s pop fame, through incredible highs and lows, ultimately to record-breaking success as ‘Australia’s Voice’. It’s the story of a singer and a national audience finding and believing in each other. John Farnham was 38 years old when Whispering Jack was released. Nobody ever questioned that he could sing, but the journey to find his artistic voice and become Australia’s most trusted and beloved performer took half a lifetime. His album Whispering Jack is still the highest selling Australian album ever, and this documentary tracks the personal and public life that lead to Farnham becoming and remaining Australia’s greatest musical artist. Featuring commentary by Olivia Newton-John, Jimmy Barnes, Celine Dion, Richard Marx, Robbie Williams, Daryl Braithwaite, Glenn and Gaynor Wheatley, James and Robert Farnham plus many more.
Paul Clarke, Blink TV’s Director and an Executive Producer and Co-writer on Finding The Voice says “I can’t wait for you all to see it, it’s been quite a responsibility, and it had to be great. It’s by far the most moving film we’ve ever made. Thanks to everyone who contributed their stories, their time and their efforts. We’ve concentrated on JF’s live performances so you can see and hear just why he is The Voice.”
The documentary has become the highest Australian grossing feature length documentary and music documentary of all-time, and the fourth highest grossing feature length documentary of all-time behind Michael Jackson’s This Is It, Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine.
The program will be screened on Channel 7 in Australia in late July
