The Mayor's ambition to make London the greenest city on the planet has

:00:00.:00:20.

Up to a third of jobs in London could be at risk from technology

:00:21.:00:24.

That's according to the financial firm Deloitte.

:00:25.:00:27.

So what kind of jobs will it affect and what might replace them?

:00:28.:00:32.

In the latest on our series on Future London we're looking

:00:33.:00:34.

at how London might be working by 2050.

:00:35.:00:46.

Not too many sweets? Children here are imagining the world of work, be

:00:47.:00:52.

it as a dentist or supermarket cashier, they are trying to earn

:00:53.:00:55.

enough to put in the bank. What they can't account for is how rapid

:00:56.:00:58.

changes in technology are having an impact on the workforce. Across the

:00:59.:01:04.

world, two thirds of children entering primary School will end up

:01:05.:01:07.

working in jobs that don't yet exist. So what types of jobs will

:01:08.:01:13.

they be, and how will be created? And what impact will it have on the

:01:14.:01:18.

workforce? Technology has had a big impact on jobs in London, certainly

:01:19.:01:21.

over the last 15 years. We think that trend will continue. We have

:01:22.:01:26.

lost two thirds of travel agents and two thirds of librarians due to the

:01:27.:01:29.

impact of technology. The good news is that it has been more than made

:01:30.:01:33.

up for by new jobs created by technology, jobs and technology

:01:34.:01:36.

itself, creative jobs, professional service jobs and a lot of caring

:01:37.:01:42.

jobs. At Deloitte digital office, they are working with companies to

:01:43.:01:45.

help them make the most of new technology. One day, you could be

:01:46.:01:50.

served by a robot like this. Though, like humans, she can also be prone

:01:51.:01:55.

to an off day. We like to have this technology here so that we can show

:01:56.:02:00.

it to clients, rather than talk to them about it, because some of

:02:01.:02:06.

these... Oh, she's dyed! Will the new technology free up our ability

:02:07.:02:11.

to work wherever, whenever? The shared work space has opened in

:02:12.:02:13.

Spitalfields, on the fringe of the city, home to the more conventional

:02:14.:02:20.

workplace. In this building there are 150 different teams, from

:02:21.:02:23.

charities, all the way through to small teams from big corporations

:02:24.:02:28.

like Ernst Young, the accounting firm. What we are doing is creating

:02:29.:02:31.

an environment in which small teams can really flourish. The city right

:02:32.:02:37.

now makes life really hard for a small business. So how we work and

:02:38.:02:41.

what we will be doing in 30 years' time could be unrecognisable.

:02:42.:02:45.

The head of the Metropolitan Police Federation say's it's a disgrace

:02:46.:02:48.

31 officers were injured at this years Notting Hill carnival.

:02:49.:02:50.

with bottles and other objects, while others had blood spat at them.

:02:51.:02:56.

Ken Marsh who leads the Federation says he'll be talking

:02:57.:02:59.

to the Mayor and Scotland Yard about the incidents.

:03:00.:03:01.

313 people were arrested over the two day event which was attended

:03:02.:03:04.

Plenty of sportsmen and women have second thoughts about retirement.

:03:05.:03:19.

How about making a come back after 38 years?

:03:20.:03:23.

That's exactly what two synchronised swimmers from Bracknell

:03:24.:03:25.

Tom Hepworth went to watch Andrea Holland

:03:26.:03:28.

The world Masters Championships in Budapest. Andrea and Carolyn won

:03:29.:03:43.

bronze in their age group. My God. I remember the pink costumes and

:03:44.:03:46.

dreadful headdresses. The last time they were ranked in the top five in

:03:47.:03:53.

the world was in 1969. It was like going back in time and you just feel

:03:54.:03:57.

the same. You don't look the same, but you feel exactly the same. After

:03:58.:04:02.

retiring, they continued coaching. Andrea got back into the water again

:04:03.:04:06.

to raise money for Cancer research. She persuaded Carolyn to join her

:04:07.:04:17.

last year. With swimming, it makes me feel young again. I think we swim

:04:18.:04:19.

better now than we did in 1979. It has been a long time since we

:04:20.:04:30.

swam together previously, but we got straight back into it. We sort of

:04:31.:04:32.

know what the other one is thinking. The social life goes out the window.

:04:33.:04:45.

This becomes our social life. Which perhaps is not fair on our behalf.

:04:46.:04:53.

But something has to give. Carolyn and Andrea have no intention of

:04:54.:04:57.

retiring for a second time just yet. They have their eye on the European

:04:58.:04:59.

Championships in Slovenia next year. It was a private show for supporters

:05:00.:05:03.

and friends of the Royal Ballet. Prince Charles was going to be

:05:04.:05:06.

in the audience and she wanted Princess Diana's top

:05:07.:05:09.

secret performance with Wayne Sleep was

:05:10.:05:15.

leaked to the tabloids - but it showed the world how

:05:16.:05:17.

passionate she was about dance. 20 years on from her death,

:05:18.:05:20.

her support for all forms of dancing is being kept alive,

:05:21.:05:24.

as Sarah Harris reports. The Royal Academy of dance, in

:05:25.:05:36.

Battersea Square, where it all started for one of the most famous

:05:37.:05:39.

ballet stars of his day, Wayne sleep. It was back in his heyday

:05:40.:05:44.

that he struck up a friendship with the then Princess of Wales, a

:05:45.:05:50.

closeness he still feels 20 years after her death. I will find it very

:05:51.:05:55.

sad to remember this, but also I will remember the fun moments we had

:05:56.:05:59.

together. We had a great time, you know. She used to come over to the

:06:00.:06:05.

flat, kick off her heels and walk around barefoot. Just completely

:06:06.:06:12.

zonk out and relax. I thought it was wonderful that she could feel so

:06:13.:06:19.

comfortable in my presence. Diana famously loved to dance and wanted

:06:20.:06:23.

to learn to surprise her husband at the Royal Opera house. It was when

:06:24.:06:27.

she chose to be her partner, despite their dramatic height difference.

:06:28.:06:32.

Amazingly, what I didn't know, she took to it like a duck to water. I

:06:33.:06:37.

mean, the performance was as if she had been performing all her life at

:06:38.:06:41.

Covent Garden. I was worried the nerves would get to her on the

:06:42.:06:45.

night, 2600 people, complete blackout, Spotlight in your face,

:06:46.:06:49.

and you've got to do a big routine. Your husband is watching from the

:06:50.:06:53.

box. You haven't told him about it. You are going to get a rollicking,

:06:54.:06:59.

probably, but who cares? She just went for gold. Next door to the

:07:00.:07:03.

Royal Academy and a certain Prince George will be starting this school

:07:04.:07:06.

in a feud short weeks. And guess what? He will be having ballet

:07:07.:07:11.

lessons with a Royal Academy accredited teacher. His grandmother

:07:12.:07:13.

supported by lay until the end of her life, including helping Wayne's

:07:14.:07:20.

foundation for young artists. He believes she would be delighted that

:07:21.:07:24.

George is taking lessons and has this advice. Keep at it. It's good

:07:25.:07:30.

technique, it makes your mind quick and it is very good exercise.

:07:31.:07:36.

Lets face it, the weather is rubbish today. Let's see if the summer

:07:37.:07:40.

really is finally over. From the warmth and sunshine

:07:41.:07:42.

of recent days to something A damp start in

:07:43.:07:47.

Teddington this morning. The rain's been fairly patchy

:07:48.:07:51.

over the last few hours. It was dry when this picture

:07:52.:07:54.

was taken in Heathrow, You can see from the most

:07:55.:07:56.

recent satellite and radar that there is more rain to come

to the afternoon and this will become more persistent,

:08:01.:08:03.

brighter colours indicating It's going to take its time

:08:04.:08:04.

to clear away eastwards. Probably not seeing something drier

:08:05.:08:08.

until much later that afternoon. Really having an impact

:08:09.:08:10.

on the temperatures. They won't get much higher than 14

:08:11.:08:12.

or 15 Celsius, a much cooler feel. Slowly from the West, things

:08:13.:08:15.

will dry up through this evening. Showers following on behind,

:08:16.:08:18.

but eventually the night becomes dry on the skies

:08:19.:08:20.

turn increasingly clear. Temperatures holding up into double

:08:21.:08:24.

figures in the centre of town, in more rural spots it will get down

:08:25.:08:28.

to around eight or nine Celsius. We start tomorrow with

:08:29.:08:32.

plenty of sunshine. Fairly soon there be

:08:33.:08:34.

some cloud developing. Through the afternoon, that does

:08:35.:08:36.

bring the chance of some showers. Quite well scattered,

:08:37.:08:44.

but if you catch one, it could well beyond the sharp side

:08:45.:08:46.

and fairly slow moving as well. At least in the sunshine,

:08:47.:08:49.

temperatures perking up again tomorrow with highs of 19 or 20

:08:50.:08:51.

Celsius. We see this area of high

:08:52.:08:53.

pressure slowly building Lasting pretty much

all of the weekend. The system eventually

:08:56.:09:00.

will bring more cloud For Thursday and Friday,

bright starts, maybe a few Plenty of sunshine on Saturday,

a very good afternoon. Worth making a
