Olympics Closing Ceremony: Iconic images of Britain.

This would be useful for the Pilot GCSE Cultural Geography section (and also the "My Place" unit...)
(This has already been suggested by other colleagues as a possible piece of work - also designing a route for the Olympic torch...)

The closing ceremony had an 8 minute slot where a lot of time and effort (and money) had gone into showcasing London.
What was included ?
What was suitably iconic ?

The LONDON BUS - plus commuters
Music ? Led Zeppelin sung by a TV talent competition winner, with altered lyrics...
David Beckham kicking a football.
A Blue Peter competition winner...

What would you have included in your 8 minutes ?

And what about this STORY FROM THE TELEGRAPH ?

What do you think the other images that were on the video shown at the event would have been ?
