Every year I got a birthday card from
this study. That was something my wee brother didn’t get and it made me think
that there was somebody who was taking an interest in the kind of questions
that I was answering. I think it’s contributed to
understanding of how lives develop. We were finding new things. We had
facilities to do it and we could draw on experts around the
country and abroad all working together for the common cause. It’s been one of the most influential pools
of data that possibly the world has ever seen.
