Title : House of Bond
Duration : 2 x 90 min
Broadcaster : Nine Network
HOUSE OF BOND tells the rags to riches to rags tale of controversial business tycoon Alan Bond – a man with an insatiable appetite for the excesses of life – women, fame, money, crime and everything in-between. It is the outrageous story of how a cheeky, knockabout Ten-Pound-Pom rises up from the back alleys of Fremantle to become the richest man in Australia and one of our greatest sporting heroes. But whose ego, greed and ambition sees him overreach beyond all measure – his empire spectacularly falling down like a house of cards as he overnight becomes the country’s greatest villain with the biggest bankruptcy Australia has ever seen.
HOUSE OF BOND is the extraordinary story of how Alan Bond defined the 1980’s in Australia by dreaming big and rewriting the rulebook. A man who inspired a nation to believe in themselves and make them feel that anything, no matter how impossible, could be achieved.
But a man who dreams were built with other people’s money.
Alan Bond. Hero? Villain? Or a little bit of both.
