Extratime: Brian Burke

In an Extratime programme first broadcast on Friday 21st September 2007, Rob Bonnet talks to the manager of the Anaheim Ducks ice hockey team, Brian Burke.

A week before the new NHL ice hockey season begins in the US, Extratime talks to one of the most outspoken managers in the competition.

In June 2007 Brian Burke led the once-unfancied Anaheim Ducks to win ice hockey's greatest prize, the Stanley Cup.

Burke makes no apologies for his team's combative style and says he looks for "pugnacity, truculence, belligerence, hostility and testosterone" in his players.

Why does he describe ice hockey as "the most exciting sport in the world, and the fastest sport without an engine"?

HARDtalk can be seen on BBC World at 03:30h GMT (not Asia), 08:30h GMT, 14:30h GMT, 20:30h GMT, 23:30h GMT (not Asia)

It can also be seen on BBC News 24 at 0430 and 2330.
