Apparently there was a programme on, which had people representing their countries in a dancing competition.
The Zulu dance based on the celebration after a victory appears to have been the winner.
Did anyone see it and was it any good ?

Further to the above.
I should have added that the programme was on Saturday 9th July 2005.

Yes, I saw it and it was good---the winner was Robbie Earle the footballer who danced a Zulu victory dance accompanied by, I believe, real South African dancers.
Very exciting and really made one think they were in KwaZulu-Natal.

That would at least explain why he mispronounced virtually every Zulu word, and wore inauthentic Zulu dress items.

And, by normal Zulu standards, the dancing wasn't much good either - bearing little resemblance to traditional dancing.

Giles Smith covers it - or sends it up - in The Times today (p68). Sounds rather ridiculous but no doubt only a bit of (very) inauthentic fun.
