Hi Iain,

Glad to hear that you're starting to learn Python.  Please feel free to
ask questions here on Tutor; we'll try to answer them as well as we can!

About your question: it depends on what you want to do.  It sounds like

This link is connected to many good Python tutorials, and you'll get a
better feeling for what we can do with Python here.

If you haven't been able to get:

>    radius = 30

Best of wishes to you.
