                    3.  A method of producing an elongate                             
          superconductive body, characterized in that the method                      
                    (a)  forming an intermediate body comprising a                    
          normal metal, orifice-free cladding surrounding a quantity of               
          oxide powder and in contact therewith;                                      
                    (b)  forming an elongate body from the intermediate               
          body by means of one or more cross-section-reducing                         
          operations; and                                                             
                    (c)  heat treating the elongate body such that                    
          substantial sintering of the oxide powder occurs, with the                  
          oxide powder being in contact with an oxygen containing                     
          atmosphere during at least part of step (c) such that the thus              
          produced  body manifests superconductivity, with T  of 30 K or              
          above, T

          inert with respect to oxygen and with respect to the oxide                  
          powder under the treating conditions.
