“The fascinating thing about theoretical Physics is that you can never learn about it fast enough because there’s always more being discovered to learn! And you have to specialise as soon as possible, otherwise you never get to the frontier of any branch of knowledge and so be able to have some new ideas.”



The National Youth Orchestra 1959. Beatrice is in the second row from the front wearing a black high-necked top.
