  • Description

    Billions of people around the world welcomed in the New Millennium with some of the most spectacular celebrations ever seen. 2000 - The Tate Modern opens in London. Concorde Air France Flight 4590 crashes just after takeoff from Paris killing all 109 aboard and 5 on the ground. The UK fuel protests take place, with refineries blockaded, and supply to the country's network of petrol stations halted. The use of mobile phones continues to grow as mobile phones move from the percieved "Yuppie Device" to an essential consumer product. The UK is hit by one of the worst snow storms in the last 50 years bringing public transport to a halt. Mad Cow Disease causes alarm in Europe due to it's growth. The Summer Olympics are held in Sydney Australia. The Concerns over Y2K passes without the serious, widespread computer failures and malfunctions that had been predicted. Microsoft releases Windows 2000. AOL and Time Warner Merge. The popular show Big Brother is broadcast and captures worldwide media interest. The Latest Harry Potter Book Is Published "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire". 51 million viewers watch the first season finale of the reality show "Survivor". The last of the original Mini's rolls off the production lines. Sony Playstation 2 is released. Our vision of the future is always changing. In the year 1910, we imagined that the year 2000 would be filled with airships and multi-armed robotic helpers. In the 1960s, manned trips to Mars seemed in our grasp. Early ideas about the Internet were sharpened and refined, and we saw nuclear technology and plastics change our lives, but in different ways than we predicted. How the UK coped with the millennium bug 15 years ago In the final months of 1999 concern grew into panic that the millennium bug was going to cause computers to malfunction and potentially endanger everything from tills to power stations. It didn't happen quite like that, but the public safety warnings from the time remain intriguing. The eight-page pullout that Action 2000 placed in British newspapers in 1999 is a snapshot of the technology in a home at the time. The government-backed advice booklet warns what to do about video recorders, answer phones and fax machines. The illustrations are of cathode ray tube computer monitors. The bug had first been predicted years before. An article in Computer World magazine in 1993 was one of the first to attempt to bring it to a wider audience. "Have you ever been in a car crash?" the article asked. "Unfortunately, unlike the car crash, time will not slow down for us. If anything, we're accelerating toward disaster." The bug was about the limitations of the clocks inside computers. Since the 1960s computers denoted years such as 1998 as 98 to save memory. As a result, when the new millennium arrived, it was expected many computer clocks would see 00 and understand that to mean 1900. "All of a sudden your business logic wouldn't work," says Ross Anderson, professor of security engineering at Cambridge University, of the threat. "The time of an invoice, delivery, transaction or any of the other 101 processes a business has is thrown completely off". In 1993, a newsletter called "Tick, Tick, Tick" ran a "worst-case scenario contest" which sought "the most creative ideas of what could happen on 01/01/2000". Many governments took precautions and in the UK and elsewhere they went further than just concentrating on business and key infrastructure - ordinary homeowners were drawn in too. In the UK Action 2000 was set up to warn and to prepare. Electronic machines needed to be "year 2000 compliant". "Your business is in danger" a leaflet stated in large yellow letters. But the message was still restrained - "the very worst that can happen is that some (computers) may get confused over the date". Its millennium bug "home check" pullout sought to explain. "Check your PC with our simple 5-layer Bug Test," it said. But it was also an attempt to dispel myths. "Very few household appliances are affected," it explained. "Lawn mowers, hedge trimmers, rotovators, barbeques (and) swimming pool equipment" are confirmed as safe. In the popular memory, the millennium bug was something that failed to come to pass. Most forget that there were consequences. In the UK, the bug was blamed for more than 150 pregnant women getting incorrect results for tests for Down's Syndrome. And while the wilder predictions in the media did not come to pass, those who worked on informing the public feel they acted sensibly and proportionately at the time. "We achieved our aim," says Gwynneth Flower, who was the managing director of Action 2000. "There were a few eccentrics. One woman virtually moved her whole family to a remote house in Scotland, with water only from a well at the bottom of the garden, because she thought it would be Armageddon." Traditional advertising was used, but also lectures in schools. We "explained it to them so they go and tell mummy and daddy, and ask what they were doing to prepare". Take-up in some areas was slow. Even within the government. In 1999 a report from the National Audit Office warned that there was a "wide variation in progress" by local authorities. Some found the preparations excessive. "It was an astonishing incident," says Anthony Finkelstein, professor of software systems engineering at UCL. But its implications were described by Tony Blair at the time as "one of the most serious problems facing not only British business but the global economy today". Margaret Beckett, then the minister in charge of millennium preparations, said the bug had the capacity to "wreak havoc". "I think there was a lot of hyperbole in the press. Part of our job was to keep on top of the hype" says Paddy Tipping, then minister for the millennium bug. "We had to downplay it and persuade people there was a strong government initiative working. Many people made their names saying it would be a catastrophe." But Finkelstein says it was political. "The cost of political overreaction is smaller than underreaction. It was a confluence of politics, commercial money, journalists who had a story too good to check and local interest." 2000: Spring freeze brings chaos Severe weather has forced the closure of one of Britain's main airports, Luton, near London, as blizzards and flooding have caused widespread chaos. More than two weeks into British Summer Time, much of the country has been experiencing its coldest April day on record. Large swathes of countryside were blanketed in snow, bringing traffic to a standstill and paralysing transport systems. The blast of icy weather comes just a month after weather meteorologists pronounced this winter the sunniest this century, with a daily average in England and Wales of two-and-a-half hours of sunshine a day. Concorde crash kills 113 Concorde crashed just minutes after take-off, killing all 109 people on board and four people on the ground. The Air France jet, bound for New York, crashed into a Relais Bleu hotel in the town of Gonesse, 10 miles north of Paris just before 1700 local time (1500 GMT). It is understood the aircraft, which had taken off from Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport just two minutes earlier, plummeted to the ground after one of the left-hand engines caught fire on take-off. There were 100 passengers on board, most were German tourists but also included two Danes, an Austrian and an American, all travelling to JFK airport in New York where they were due to join a cruise ship bound for Equador. M25 killer A man who carried out a "road rage" killing is beginning a life sentence after being convicted of murder at the Old Bailey in London. Kenneth Noye, 52, stabbed Stephen Cameron in the heart and liver as they fought on a slip road alongside the M25 motorway in 1996. Noye had been angered by the driving of Mr Cameron's girlfriend, Danielle Cable, who had cut into the lane ahead of his Landrover. When the vehicles came to a halt he got out and confronted Mr Cameron who died at the scene in the arms of Ms Cable. After the killing Noye fled to the Costa del Sol in Spain where he was arrested in 1998 by British police. Described by police as a "professional criminal", Noye had already been acquitted after a trial for stabbing an undercover policeman to death. However, he served a 14-year jail term for handling proceeds from the UK's biggest robbery, the Brinks Mat bullion heist. After Noye's arrest Danielle Cable was given a new identity and 24-hour police guard and moved to another part of Britain. Police believed as the main prosecution witness and the person who identified Noye in Spain, she might be targeted by his underworld associates. Another eye-witness, Alan Decabral, testified against Noye in spite of threats on his life. Mr Decabral was shot dead in August 2000 - Noye was questioned in connection with the murder but no charges were brought against him. In October 2001 Kenneth Noye's appeal was rejected and in March 2004 failed in his High Court attempt to challenge his mandatory life sentence. Sarah Payne's body found Police have confirmed the body they found in a West Sussex field yesterday is that of missing eight-year old Sarah Payne. A farm worker found the human remains less than 12 miles from where Sarah went missing near her grandparents' home near Littlehampton on 1 July. The partly covered body was lying 10 yards away from the A29 between Pulborough and Billingshurst. Sarah's parents, Sara and Michael, spent 20 minutes at the scene and laid flowers there. They looked at the tributes left by hundreds of well-wishers and police. Two days later police found what they believed to be one of Sarah's shoes in the village of Coolham, a few miles to the east of where the body was found. On 31 July, Roy Whiting - a known paedophile - was arrested then released on bail. He had already been questioned and released on 2 July. Whiting was arrested and charged with the murder on 6 February 2001. On 12 December 2001 he was found guilty of abducting and murdering Sarah Payne and given a life sentence. In 1995 Whiting had been given a four year sentence for attacking a nine-year-old girl. The News of the World supported Sara and Michael Payne in their campaign for "Sarah's Law" and public access to the sex offenders' register. Pressure for a so-called Sarah's Law has been maintained. But the government has resisted calls saying there would be a risk of the public taking the law into their own hands. The Krays Charlie Kray, one of the infamous Kray brothers, dies in hospital of the Isle of Wight after suffering a heart attack in Parkhurst Prison. He was 73 years old. 26 August – Gangster and murderer Reggie Kray, in the 32nd year of his life sentence at Broadmoor Hospital, is released from prison on compassionate grounds by Home Secretary Jack Straw due to bladder cancer from which he is expected to die within weeks. 1 October – Reggie Kray dies of cancer in a Norwich hotel at the age of 66. Kray was jailed for life in 1969 alongisde his brother, Ronald 'Ronnie' Kray, for the murder of their friend Jack 'the Hat' McVitie at a flat in Stoke Newington. Ronnie Kray died in prison in 1995. He was serving a life sentence for the murder of George Cornell when he suffered a heart attack. In 2000, Reggie, whose real name was Reginald, was released from prison on compassionate grounds after being diagnosed with cancer. He took up a room in Beefeater Town House Hotel in Norwich after being discharged from the Norwich Hospital. On October 1, with his wife Roberta at his bedside, he died peacefully in his sleep. Considered the softer of the two twins, Reggie married twice in his life. His first wife, Frances Kray, died in 1967. While some claimed the young bride killed herself, others suggested Reggie's twin, Ronnie, had a hand in her death. Fuel protesters rally for tax cut Convoys of lorries and tractors have converged on the capitals of England and Scotland to mark the 60-day deadline for government action to cut fuel tax. Both demonstrations passed off peacefully. The biggest was in London where protesters rallied in Hyde Park. About 350 vehicles were stopped by police from entering the centre of the city. Drivers parked their vehicles on the hard shoulder of the Westway on the outskirts of central London before making their way on foot to the demonstration. In Edinburgh, about 150 vehicles from as far away as John O'Groats converged on Princes Street in the city centre. However, a spokesman for Prime Minister Tony Blair reiterated the government would not back down on fuel tax. He said: "We have acknowledged repeatedly that the price of petrol is high and this causes particular problems, for example, for people in rural communities. "We have done what we can, but to do more would be to start to jeopardise the extra investment the government is putting into public services." Fuel tax activists have warned they will take action again next year if the government does not meet their demands. 2000 Timeline Japanese carmaker Nissan adds a third model to its factory near Sunderland; the new version of the Almera hatchback and slaoon, which goes on sale in March. 1 January – Millennium celebrations take place throughout the UK.
