open that page and in the middle of the page---you will see RELATED VIDEO

1.Decade On (9:32)
2.Donor Issues (4.29)
3.Checkering It Out (4:39)

Click on the #3 and let the VIDEO PLAY takes only few seconds (You will see Jan and many others playing checkers)

I liked the explaing of the rules, with Lisa Owens being captured.
If only all checker games would be that lively, we would have no problems to promote it !

Thanks Ingo,

That's a great clip, I knew a TV crew had done a story on Jan but didn't think I'd ever get to see it.

Jan Mortimer deserves much credit for making this valuable and important television coverage possible.
Players who travel around the world at enormous personal expense promoting checkers are deserving of the highest admiration.
Well done Jan. I am so very proud of you.

It's nice to see a clip on checkers :). Keep up the great work, Jan! I found on their index that they have two quality versions of this clip. Incase anyone wants to see higher quality or to keep a backup of this:
56k: http://images.tvnz.co.nz/tvnz_video/win ... 05_56k.asx
128k: http://images.tvnz.co.nz/tvnz_video/win ... 5_128k.asx

Edit: I like the blonde news lady; she's cute :D
