One week in July 2005. Live 8. G8. London 2012 Olympics. 7/7

It's July 2005 and Britain feels like the centre of the world. Big events are happening and everyone is talking about them. In schools, offices, streets, shops, parks and homes – there's a buzz in the air. You can feel the sense of anticipation. The world's eyes are focused on us and you can feel the energy and possibilities.

In less than an hour in central London, everything will change…
