It started with the idea to put all children's care under one roof,

This shopping centre installation celebrates
accessible art that has always been at the heart of the town.
Depicted as a stage set here, the idea is for
you to go out and find the originals yourself.
I think art is always about thinking about what might come next.
Milton Keynes is also a town that was following a similar thought
process, how can you construct a space that will also work 50 years
I think it makes sense that integrated
art is in the fabric of its open architecture.
These concrete cows from 1978 have to be the most famous
or infamous piece of public art here in Milton Keynes.
But over the years, there has been far
more going on in the art scene here than these brutalist beasts.
In 1988, roads were closed when Michael Jackson performed here.

At first, they were a bit sort of, Oh no, we don't want to...

I join my honourable friend in marking Milton
Keynes' 50th birthday, and also I understand he has secured a

Through the course of the day, the cloud will start to thin
and break, particularly for southern parts.
But we will hold onto the cloud cover into the afternoon and
temperatures in some places will reach just freezing.
Given the strength of the wind, the air is

There will be dry interludes as well, and a band of

hills. Even with the cloud, it will be a cold night, with temperatures
away from the far north and west falling to
