   "When I joined the Tate Gallery Conservation Department I had no
    idea that I'd still be there in a year's time let alone in the
    next century, finally retiring as Head of Conservation in May
    2005.

   "In this presentation, I will explore some of the ways in which
    Conservation evolved to meet the ambitions of a rapidly
    expanding Tate, improving standards of care and presentation of
    the Collection and responding to changes in the broader culture
    of conservation. I shall also recall a few of the many events
    that colour my memories, from my first tentative steps in
    restoration to pacing the streets of Frankfurt in search of
    stolen Turners."
