His lecture, entitled 'Are measurements necessary?', was both entertaining, informative and highlighted the importance of measurement to our everyday lives, illustrated with some of the world-leading work undertaken at NPL. It was followed by a lively Q&A session.

Later the same evening, Graham was awarded the Callendar Medal, which commemorates Professor H L Callendar FRS, the pioneer of platinum resistance thermometry. The award is presented annually to an engineer or scientist who has made a significant contribution to the art of instruments or measurement. Graham was awarded the medal for his significant contributions to the field of temperature measurement.
