Good evening and welcome to central London where I have invited a few

0:00:160:00:20

friends to join me on the banks of the River Thames to see in the New

0:00:200:00:23

Year in style. Good evening, London!

0:00:230:00:28

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE what an incredible atmosphere down here and

0:00:280:00:32

what a night to turn up to see the New Year.

0:00:320:00:37

Admittedly, we've had a bit of rain, but what do you expect in London?

0:00:370:00:41

At the moment it is ten degrees down here. A wonderful atmosphere,

0:00:410:00:48

so many people have turned out, Big Ben is getting ready. There are

0:00:480:00:52

people prepared to light up the London sky this evening and when

0:00:520:00:57

they do, 2012 will have arrived and what is year promises to be. We

0:00:570:01:02

have the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, the European Championships with

0:01:020:01:05

England and Ireland competing, another dramatic Formula One season,

0:01:060:01:11

and the Olympics and Paralympic Games are coming to London. It is

0:01:110:01:17

209 days until the Olympics is here. In about five minutes, make it 208.

0:01:170:01:23

If you have not made any resolutions, it is not too late.

0:01:230:01:27

People who have made new year's resolutions are 10 times more

0:01:270:01:32

likely to achieve their goals. What would you like to make 2012 special

0:01:320:01:36

for? While you think about that, let's look ahead to what will be a

0:01:360:01:40

magical year and also have a look at what was a rather interesting

0:01:400:01:50
0:01:500:02:09

I have known a few greater honours than the opportunity to address

0:02:090:02:19
0:02:190:02:32

The News of the World is to close. A victim of its own phone hacking

Welcomed the world's finest athletes to the greatest games that

0:03:230:03:33
0:03:330:03:40

have ever been held in the greatest See you in London. I've been

0:03:400:03:45

following some excited Olympians on Twitter today. They have waited

0:03:450:03:49

years the 2012. These guys have waited hours to see the fireworks.

0:03:490:03:54

Mobile phones being passed around and a lot of excited people. This

0:03:540:03:58

is Tammy from the States and there was a farce with the headwear. What

0:03:580:04:04

happened? We wanted to stand out for the University of Manchester. I

0:04:040:04:09

asked Carlos to get a sunhat. Carlos has to do the work. Where

0:04:090:04:15

did you get that hat? Just across the river. A quarter of a million

0:04:150:04:18

people here this evening, that is not as easy as it sounds. How long

0:04:180:04:24

did it take? Three hours. That deserves a new year's case.

0:04:240:04:29

Congratulations. Thank you for travelling here. Another man I want

0:04:290:04:34

to introduce you to his Daniel. If the fireworks don't work it is

0:04:340:04:38

because he is no longer working with them. You were working on them

0:04:380:04:43

last year. That's right. In a couple of minutes the fireworks

0:04:430:04:46

will start and there are many people with boxes of matches over

0:04:460:04:52

there. That is not actually the case, is it? No. It is all done via

0:04:520:04:58

G Ps and time codes. There are several back-up systems. Let's hope

0:04:580:05:04

Big Ben and the fireworks do their bit. They are wearing engagement

0:05:040:05:10

rings so no on a proposal this year. This is Julian, Dick Formula One

0:05:100:05:16

and Sebastian Vettel fan. -- Did Formula One fan. We have some

0:05:160:05:22

people here from Brazil. We make New year's resolutions, but you

0:05:220:05:26

make new year's wish lists. Would you mind sharing them? My first

0:05:260:05:30

wish is to have a nice friendship offer and I would like to journey

0:05:300:05:35

around Asia. And I wish there were equal rights around the world.

0:05:350:05:43

That's lovely! Thank you. You're wearing a colour that is very

0:05:430:05:47

special and this time of year in Brazil. Yes, it means I want peace

0:05:470:05:51

for next year and that is why most Brazilians where White on New

0:05:510:05:56

Year's Eve. We would all echo that sentiment. Happy New Year, thank

0:05:560:06:00

you for travelling to London. I am so glad it is not raining for you

0:06:000:06:07

guys. If you look on the other side of the river, you can see the

0:06:070:06:10

countdown has started. I will see you in about five minutes' time

0:06:100:06:20

Ten! Nine! Eight! Seven! Six! Five! The International Olympic Committee

0:07:380:07:44

has the honour of announcing that the gains of the 30th Olympiad in

2012 are awarded to the City of Wow! That looked pretty special

0:17:570:18:01

from here. I would imagine it looks good from where you're sitting as

0:18:010:18:05

well. From Shirley Bassey de Coldplay, that was the most

0:18:050:18:11

stunning thing. That is how we do things in London. Welcome to 2012.

0:18:110:18:17

That wasn't bad. Best thing I've ever seen. And you got a good seat.

0:18:170:18:22

That's what you get for getting here at 1pm. At this stage in a

0:18:220:18:26

country such as Spain, they might eat 12 grapes to celebrate. In

0:18:260:18:32

Japan they would bank on a halt -- bang on a gong at 108 times. In the

0:18:320:18:38

UK, we link arms and wheezing the famous old song from Robert Burns,

0:18:380:18:44

# Should auld acquaintance be forgot.

0:18:440:18:47

# And never brought to mind. # Should auld acquaintance be

0:18:470:18:50

forgot. # And the days of auld lang syne.

0:18:500:18:57

# For auld lang syne, my dear. # For auld lang syne.

0:18:570:19:07
0:19:070:19:16

# We'll tak a cup of kindness yet. # For the sake of auld lang syne.

0:19:160:19:17

# Should auld acquaintance be forgot.

0:19:170:19:20

# And never brought to mind. # Should auld acquaintance be

0:19:200:19:22

forgot. # And the days of auld lang syne.

0:19:220:19:25

# For auld lang syne, my dear. # For auld lang syne.

0:19:260:19:34

# We'll tak a cup of kindness yet. # For the sake of auld lang syne.

0:19:340:19:35

# Should auld acquaintance be forgot.

0:19:350:19:40

# And never brought to mind. # Should auld acquaintance be

0:19:400:19:45

forgot. # And the days of auld lang syne.

0:19:450:19:51

# For auld lang syne, my dear. # For auld lang syne.

0:19:510:19:58

# We'll tak a cup of kindness yet. # For the sake of auld lang syne.

0:19:580:20:04

# For auld lang syne, my dear. # For auld lang syne.

0:20:040:20:11

# We'll tak a cup of kindness yet. # For the sake of auld lang syne.

0:20:110:20:21
0:20:210:20:36

# For auld lang syne. That was good fun. I thought I

0:20:360:20:40

wasn't going to get a partner for a minute. Auld Lang Syne on the Bank

0:20:400:20:46

of the Thames for the New Year, wonderful. My dad is in his 60s and

0:20:460:20:52

he still doesn't know the words! 2012, the most incredible of years.

0:20:520:20:55

Whether it is the euros or the Olympics or the Diamond Jubilee or
