It is often best to leave one’s past well alone but, while moving house, a friend found an old cine film I took nearly 40 years ago and not having a projector any more I had it transferred to video. It brings back fond memories of a slower pace of life. I am not sure it was less stressful as I was new to microbiology work and studying part time. I met some wonderful people and a very few who were not so great but I guess that same for most people.
So here it is. It shows a CVL, Bacteriology Department contest between scientists with more at stake than the Ashes, plus an epic boat journey which maybe scary for anyone with a fear of heights. Many of the people shown have moved out of my life, but I do know where a few are. Those were golden days.
