Richard Wyatt and Polly Lloyd present this exclusive look back at the history of Bristol from the early days of Saxon settlement through to the spectacular celebrations as the city welcomed in the new millennium. Featuring an incredible archive of rarely seen material, Richard and Polly uncover the magic of Bristol as never seen before. Archive footage includes the Prince of Wales cutting the first sod at Avonmouth Docks in 1902, King Edward VII officially opening Royal Edward Dock in 1908 and Jubilee celebrations from two different eras - George V in 1937 and Elizabeth II in 1977. There are historic shots of the Brabazon and Concorde being built and then flown on their maiden voyages from Filton, dramatic colour footage of Bristol during the blitz and Churchill - cigar in mouth - inspecting the damage. Look out for pictures of the 1936 centenary of Bristol Zoo and the birth of the white tiger cubs in 1968 - the first to be born in Europe - plus memories of the return of the SS Great Britain, brought back from the Falklands to the city in which she was built. Sporting highlights are featured too, City and Rovers, Bristol Rugby and Gloucestershire County cricket, plus other sports that made their mark - including the spectacle of powerboat racing in the docks. The footage ends with the unforgettable millennium celebrations which heralded a new-look Bristol as ambitious development is changing the face of the city centre and its quayside. This is a fabulous record of one of England's greatest cities.

Twenty Twelve Series 1 & 2 Box Set Filmed in a documentary style, Twenty Twelve deals with such hot topics as how to phase the traffic lights across London to get people from west to east; who to sell the Taekwondo hall to after the event; what to do when protesters leave large quantities of horse dung on the doorstep in protest at the siting of the equestrian events, and how to cope with sportsmen who want to help but are just too dull. From getting a busload of non-English speaking Brazilians from A to B, who to appoint to run the Cultural Olympiad and what to do when the much-vaunted wind turbines won't turn because there's no wind, it's all in a day's work for the men and women whose job it is to stage the greatest sporting event in the world. In Series 2 cameras continue to follow the men and women responsible for delivering the London Olympic Games as they paddle increasingly hard to keep the games on track and on budget. The challenges they face in this series include finding a way of presenting the future of the Olympic Stadium post Games as something other than a complete shambles, how to get the Olympic Torch Relay Route to go through Shropshire, exactly how best to market "Jubilympics" as a joint branding venture between the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics, and the series kicks off with the team facing their biggest challenge yet when the Algerian team threaten to boycott the games after discovering that the Shared Belief Centre does not face Mecca. Twenty Twelve, the hilarious forerunner to the W1A, the comedic look at life inside the Beeb with voice overs by David Tennant.

Status: New - First published in 2002 and quickly sold out, this new edition of The Book of Barnstaple, published to coincide with the Diamond Jubilee, brings the story of the community fully up to date. A new section highlights what has happened since the book was first issued. Agricultural crises have left their mark on Barnstaple and the surrounding countryside. The loss of the town centre cattle market in 2003 was a further blow to the farming community who for hundreds of years had visited the town on a Friday to buy and sell their livestock. But Avril Stone shows how the town has survived strongly the dawn of this new age and features: the new Western Bypass and Downstream Bridge which has relieved Barnstaple's traffic jams and given a more relaxing atmosphere to the newly revamped Square and Strand; Barnstaple trading families who have stood the test of time; visits to Barnstable USA and the making of Barnstaple's only oversees burgess; some of the sporting activities and facilities that have developed during the last ten years in the town; the Diamond Jubilee of the Queen's Hall, now the Queen's Theatre Trust, and its history of the North Devon Festival; and, finally, Barnstaple's celebrations of Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee. This unique publication is a vital record of the history and inhabitants of the ancient town of Barnstaple, presented in a single volume for all to treasure.
Advantages: Close to where I live, sizzling pub, tasty mixed grills Disadvantages: rowdy pub, last resort
The jubilee Inn is Grimsby's second sizzling pub restaurant. Which is central to Great coates, laceby and scartho. With this being so close to these areas it means that it is competing with the other sizzling pub "bradley Inn" I live in Laceby and to me the bradley is closer but more busy so if it looks too full there we will go to the Jubilee Inn. This is a large building...
Advantages: Great fun and super experience Disadvantages: Not too good if you get really seasick
...I first found out about the Jubilee Sailing Trust in the Southampton Boat Show. My Mum knew about it and was rather keen on me going on one of the trips so we took a brochure and a few weeks later I was booked aboard Tenacious for this summer to sail from Southampton to London. Before going on the trip I wasn't too keen or excited about the trip as I had never sailed before and it didn...
