    TRANSCRIPT: REPORTER (SEQ. 3): "How long have you been doing the pools?"



    ANSWER: "Oh, donkeys years."



    REPORTER: "Have you ever thought about what you would do if you won?"



    ANSWER: "Yes, but when you think of things like that previous to its happening, it's like rather a fantasy. When it actually happens it's something different. All thoughts go."



    (SEQ. 4): "Well then, their life's their own. They can do what they like with it."



    REPORTER: "Are you confident you can handle it?"



    ANSWER: "Yeah, well, I'm confident."



    REPORTER: "Did you have very clear ideas about what you were going to do before you ever won?"



    ANSWER: "Before, but not now."
