was produced by the Winton programme for the public understanding of risk based in the Statistical Laboratory in the University of Cambridge.

I was teaching English to a French student using a song by Labi Siffre called "Make My Day" The student had to pick out as many English words as possible. We were sitting in my lounge and as Labi Siffre sang the words, "Butterfly flying by," A beautiful butterfly flew straight between us! Incroyable!
