New Review covers the 16th World Deaf Games hosted in Christchurch 7-17 January 1989. The footage covers the opening and closing ceremonies, and selected sporting highlights from the games. 4000 people attended the opening ceremony, with 1400 athletes and officials. The biggest cheer was saved for the 113 members of the New Zealand team in black and white who marched in last. Two hours later, the first sport to take place since the opening of the Games was football between Holland and New Zealand.
