This review of the JET programme over the last eleven years concentrates on broad themes rather than the underlying physics. Major results include extensive investigations of MHD stability properties of the plasma, confinement studies in both L- and H-mode regimes, and current drive by LH wave drive or by bootstrap current. The relative merits of carbon and beryllium as first wall materials have been studied in detail, and high performance plasmas have been developed to provide the first demonstration of fusion power production with a DT mixture. A new phase of JET has just begun, following the installation of a pumped divertor.
