Walter Brendel suggested that contributions to this 20th symposium, which is clearly rather special, might be less formal and include a smattering of personal reminiscences and nostalgia, and correspondingly less conventional science. If the programme is anything to go by, I am probably the only one who has taken this advice seriously — you may well think too seriously! What I wish to present is indeed a mixture of all these. They include personal reflections on my scientific life, with an emphasis on missed opportunities rather than on whatever successes may have come my way, and on some of the more risible moments — to quote from Peter Medawar’s Memoirs of a Thinking Radish  when reviewing his own life.
