Wow, all these dads!
If you're having trouble with the clip loading, try clicking Pause once it's started, and then leave it to load all the way before clicking Play again.
Alternatively switch to the Low Res version (use the Hi/Lo switcher under the player).
Please do let us know if you continue to have problems though!

That's my Dad! Reg Harrison. How can I get this to download - it keeps stopping, despite broadband, and locking up...

I couldn't get past the accents. Wonderful. Was that Ian Fraser I heard in some of the voice-overs?

What has the world come to when women don't do their housework any more, because they're too busy watching television? Thank goodness for the score of parliamentary gentlemen who launched an investigation!

Fascinating stuff. Interesting to consider the time line of developments the show speculated on: Avalon eventually opened in 1975, the same year that a second channel (South Pacific Television) commenced. Applications to apply for a warrant to operate New Zealand’s third national television network opened in 1985. The Broadcasting Tribunal announced in 1987 that TV3 had won the warrant, and it began broadcasting 1989
