    ... and item 97 is an interview with Beurling. There is a lot of interesting material here, it's worth browsing around.

    Thanks for sharing this Bruce

    Beurling sounds tetchy, as though he really didn't want to be doing the interview.

    I know this might sound odd, but it's not really a voice I would have associated with Beurling...

    Cheers

    Steve, I agree 100% with your observation: he clearly didn't want to be there and, although I didn't know what to expect, the voice didn't seem to fit the image I had built up. Perhaps it was his 'best behaviour' voice.
