Read RPM pays tribute to Barry Sheene

Network Ten's RPM program, which returns to air this Sunday (16 March), will pay tribute to Barry Sheene in a special 90-minute episode.

Sheene sadly passed away on Monday, 10 March in a Gold Coast hospital. The 52-year-old was diagnosed with cancer late last year.

Each week on RPM in segment two, Barry joined host Bill Woods RPM to discuss the week in motorsport.

It is fitting, then, that segment two this Sunday be a dedication to the amazing life and career of Barry Sheene whose passion for motor sport, touched so many.

Watched it this arvo and was quite moved - interesting to see the breadth and depth of his influence behind the scenes as much as the great on screen persona and comments he was known for.

Bill Woods actually lost it on air at the end of the segment as he tried to close out to the commercial with the e-mail for viewers to send condolences to the family.

The man will be sorely missed.

It really was an amazing piece of television.

I'd like to thank Bill Woods for his heart, emotion and professionalism... but for most of all being human.

Great tribute CH 10!!!
