Difference Made?

Sometime ago there was a post about voting for a Sri Lankan entrant for BBC's World Challenge. Seems the unspillable lamps for Sri Lanka won out in the end. Thanks to Darth Chavie for pointing that out. Hopefully there'll be less people suffering from oil burns as a result of lamps falling over.

This can be seen here: BBC World Challenge
