was produced by the Winton programme for the public understanding of risk based in the Statistical Laboratory in the University of Cambridge. The aim was to help improve the way that uncertainty and risk are discussed in society, and show how probability and statistics can be both useful and entertaining.

Many of the animations were produced using Flash and will no longer work.

In a hotel on the North Norfolk coast we always met an old friend from Nottingham. We live in Germany.Also we met with a group of young men from Billericay in Essex who came to play golf. Sitting in the bar before dinner the young lads said that an older man sitting up a corner was their old school headmaster. So starting to talk with our friend from Nottingham it came about that in the war he was away from home and in the Marines. This old headmaster had studied in this time in Nottingham and had lodged with the friend from Nottinghams mother. They had never before met and it was now almost 2000, the lads had not seen the headmaster since leaving school - coincidence!!
