In 1967 the government set up the New Zealand Industrial Design Council to promote better design. In 1981 the council instituted the Prince Philip Design Award, which was given annually for the best New Zealand-designed products. In this television clip the judges weigh up the merits of the 1984 finalists. Fisher & Paykel won that year with what went on to be marketed as the Award range of refrigerators. The video clip ends with Colin Murdoch demonstrating his Paxarms tranquilliser guns and awards judge Bill Toomath checking them out.
