A note from James about a mistake he made discussing the primes proof: "I attributed the theorem to Tim Gowers when I should have attributed it to Green and Tao. See what I did - they have the same initials! Between the three of them, Green and Tao and Tim Gowers, they're responsible for all the major stuff to do with that theorem - and they have the same initials! And references use initials!! Gah. Ben Green is also a Cambridge mathematician."

And a note from Brady: "Sorry this got through... James was speaking unscripted and as you can hear was responding to an unexpected question... Mistakes are inevitable in this situation but we still hate them and correct them when we can."

Here's the paper: arxiv.org/pdf/math.NT/0404188.pdf
