McCormack, Mark H.
McCormack writes Jay Michaels concerning his recent meeting with Bryan Cowgill. He indicates that he is sure he will be able to come up with a contractual relationship between TWI and Thames Television, comparable to the Australian Nine Network arrangement. He explains that Cowgill is interested in making ITV more competitive with the BBC in the sports area, and refers to certain problems that could be created with the BBC as a result of an association with Thames Television. McCormack indicates that he is arranging for Cowgill to meet with Kerry Packer and lists the projects he spoke with Cowgill about. These projects include: the Battle of the Network Stars, Pro-Celebrity Tennis, Kerry Packer cricket, Virginia Wade Special, the Nobel Prizes, the Eurovision Sports idea, and the All Racquet Sports idea.
