Quantum Hall bilayers have been a subject of intense investigation since the first experiments on these systems almost thirty years ago. These are simple systems: a pair of parallel two-dimensional electron gases separated by a distance d placed in a magnetic field at low temperature.   In this talk I will consider the case where the total filling is nu=1, that is, one electron per flux quantum.   Both the small d and large d limits have been well understood for a long time.   Despite thirty years of effort (and many many publications) only very recently has a compelling picture arisen as to what happens at intermediate d.    I hope to make this talk accessible to everyone.
