A colleague has sent me a remarkable video of a conversation with the Irish surgeon Dr Denis Burkett done in 1993 some months before his death.

Rain plays havoc with Atlantic quarters
Rain yesterday played havoc with two of three matches in the quarter-finals of the Atlantic Primary Schools Inter-District tournament. Moving on to the semi-finals on Wednesday however, will be Tunapuna Presbyterian, Cunaripo RC and St. Mary’s Government.
The only quarter-final that was not played yesterday was the clash between defending champions Whim Anglican and Montrose Government. Whim had problems securing a flight from Tobago and that game will be played today at the Bamboo Recreation Ground.
Yesterday, two matches were carded for the Bamboo Recreation ground. The first game between Preysal Government and Cunaripo RC went on uninterrupted. Preysal Government batting first was humbled for just 60 runs and Cunaripo RC raced to the winning total at 61 for two after only 8.2 overs.
After this clash was out of the way, the rain started to fall and the clash between Tunapuna Presbyterian last year’s runners-up and Montrose Government was reduced to a 10-over affair.
In between the showers, Tunapuna scored 64 for one in their allotment. Tyrece Ried topscored with 16 and Ravin Persad made 14. Montrose Government reached 27/1 in 4.4 overs in reply when the heavens opened up again to put a final end to the game. Tunapuna who played unbeaten in the Group Stages moves on to the semis.
The other clash yesterday between St. Mary’s Government and Sangre Grande Hindu did not see any action as the players were unable to take the field because of the heavy rains in South. St. Mary’s moves on after topping their group with three wins, while Sangre Grande had two wins and a no-result.
Preysal Gov’t 60 all out vs Cunaripo RC 61/2 - Cunaripo won by 8 wkts.
Tunapuna Pres 64/1 (10)(Tyrece Ried 16, Ravin Persad 14) vs Montrose Gov’t 27/1 (4.4) - No result. Tunapuna moves on to quarters.
Sangre Grande Hindu vs St. Mary’s Government - No result. St. Mary’s Gov’t moves on to quarters.
