If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Australians are serious about two things: sport and taking the mickey. And nothing lends itself better to taking the mickey than sports that encourage participants (and spectators) into bizarre-looking and uncomfortable poses.
In this homage to our national pastimes, legend of trackside commentary H.G. Nelson analyses the ins and outs of athletics, from The Jumping Doc and his 'Peltzer flinch' to late nineteenth century fashion on the field (knit jumper for the football field, anyone?). Meet sibling duo the Clouting Cloghills, find out why Australia dominated tennis in the 1960s and rejoice in evidence of a Wallabies try. All this - and maybe even some grains of truth - alongside spectacular images of some of Australia's finest sporting achievements.
