Weekend - Cath Tizard, Mayor of Auckland

Television (Excerpts) – 1984

Is tourism the primary advantage in hosting the games?
– Journalist Terry Carter to Tizard

– Tizard on alcohol and tobacco sponsorship in sport

– Tizard, on how a prospective All Blacks tour to South Africa will impact the Games' preparation
It’s time enough, providing we get cracking!
– Tizard on the 2000 days to the Commonwealth Games’ kick-off

– Tizard on how Kiwis will run the Commonwealth Games compared to how the Americans ran the recent Olympics
