Include a blank slide in MS Powerpoint

I'm doing a Powerpoint presentation where the background to the slides is blue, but I want to insert a blank (ie black background) slide at intervals. When I go to "Design - Background styles" and change to black, this changes all the slides to black, not just the current one.

How can I insert a single silde as above?

Thanks !

In Powerpoint 2003, it's choose the slide, click on 'Format' | Background | choose the colour and click on 'Apply' (as opposed to 'Apply to All')

During the presentation you can press the b key which will give you a black screen.
