As the top physics PhD student at Prague's prestigious Charles University, with a distinguished anti-communist record, fluent in English and an exciting invention to his name - a new type of wet film useful in the optics industry - Tonda Pfeffer might have expected a little red carpet treatment when he came to Britain. Invited with his supervisor to deliver a presentation to Fisons, the cash-rich drugs company, the pair were transported to Cambridge on a bus (not a simple trip from Prague), billeted in a Cambridge bed and breakfast and paid their expenses. After a presentation to some academics, the pair returned to Prague. Not for long. Tonda is now happily working at the university of Kyoto on a two-year contract which includes a flat, income, and full language training. Watch out in two years time for new developments in optics technology. Fisons, when challenged about Pfeffer's visit, says they have no record of it, and to be fair to them, it may not have suited their needs, but surely someone in Cambridge should have recognised a potential winner?
