I shall recount a story about computability that begins with Turing's famous 1937 paper "On Computable Numbers, with an Application to the Entscheidungsproblem" and combines this with elements provided by Euclid, on the one hand, and Kurt Goedel, on the other. The end product is a recent (and still unpublished) theorem which is the result of a sporadic collaboration over the last dozen years between myself and Martin Escardo from the University of Birmingham.
