House of BondBeing Australia's richest man isn't enough for Alan Bond – a man with an insatiable appetite for the excesses of life - women, fame, money, crime and everything in-between. He wants to be a sporting hero, too, and bets everything on winning the America's Cup (the world's most esteemed yacht race) – and then it all comes crashing down.
Clawing his way up from his humble beginnings to become a billionaire business tycoon: first through real estate, then the beer industry, even a media mogul when he buys a TV station. But it's not enough for Alan Bond, whose ego, greed and ambition know no bounds. Hungry for ever more fame and glamour, he moves into the world of sport, bankrolling a challenge for the America's Cup, the world's most prestigious yacht race. Finally winning in the 1980s, he is not only Australia's richest man but now one of its greatest sporting heroes. Unfortunately, his dreams were built on other people's money and doomed to end in disaster - with the biggest bankruptcy the country has ever seen. Alan Bond. An extraordinary man. Hero? Villain? Or maybe a little bit of both.
