With an introduction by Dr Jim Smith, the last Director of the NIMR at Mill Hill, this Witness Seminar looks at the work of the technicians who supported the scientific research at the Institute in the latter half of the twentieth century. The participants, many of whom spent some, or all, of their careers at the NIMR, discuss topics such as innovations and achievements, techniques and technology, health and safety, social life, and the changing attitudes towards research and funding.
