"We bought it to protect the carpet from sparks but these days it protects our sportspeople from Brian..." 19 November, 2007
Reference Number: DCDL-0004415
Shows a woman explaining to her friend the reason for the large fire-screen around the television set. She says that although its original purpose was to protect the TV from sparks it now protects sportspeople from Brian whose fury at bad sports' results causes him to attack the TV with the beercans which can be seen scattered on the floor. Refers to New Zealand's run of bad luck in important sports fixtures in rugby, league, cricket and netball.
