The Young Talent Team were as famous as it gets in 1970-80s Australia. Mobbed at shopping centre concerts, packing stadiums on tour, chased down city streets during on school trips; the cast soared to heights most performers could only dream of reaching. But each knew the wild ride of YTT would have to end once they turned sixteen. Some thrived and continued performing, but others came face-to-face with the cut-throat realities of show business.
