Looking back on it, I don't quite kno^v what contribution electron microscopy has really made. I think w^hat we did, what we really did, and this ^vould apply just as much or even more to Bernard Tomlinson and of course Martin Roth, w^as to show that it was ^vorth studying. And although the acetylcholine thing fizzled out, that also sho^ved that it ^was ^vorth studying because they found a real result. That turned out not to be centrally important, although they thought it w^as. I think there's still something in that, by the w^ay, although the therapy doesn't \vork yet.

Kidd: You see, the basic problem w^as this, most of the technicians were trainees but any work they did in electron microscopy ^vould not count to^vard their final exam. All the work they did in paraffin, celloidin, and so on w^as included but the E M w^as not. I'm not sure that even now it's included on the exams. But that meant they didn't want to do this tedious vv^ork for no credit. Anyway, I had to go on training people all the time. But, to get back to the point, I won't go on making excuses but certainly, I was slow.

However, I did w^ork on that for a while and then I did teach somebody else to do that and he got his M D and is now in Oxford, not a professor, I don't think. I got him to do that bit and I didn't have to do it. Anyway, I didn't do very much in Bristol, I must say. I \vas just getting around to the idea of w^orking on A D ^when the head of the department left^—^he's now^ dead ^ but he and I w^ere not too compatible an3Avay. I had tried for other jobs to get aw^ay from him but he left before I did!
