The Great Britain Women's Curling Team triumphed over their Swiss opponents in the 2002 Winter Olympics to become the first Britons to win gold medals at the Winter Olympics since Torvill and Dean's skating success in 1984. Originating in Scotland in the Middle Ages, curling involves sliding granite stones across ice towards a target. This portrait shows the team posing during the medal ceremonies at the Salt Lake City Games. Team captain Rhona Martin (centre) is flanked left to right by team members Fiona MacDonald, Janice Rankin, Debbie Knox and Margaret Morton.

Current affairs

2002 was an eventful year for the Royal Family, highlighted by the Queen's Golden Jubilee celebrations, but marred by the death of Princess Margaret, followed just three months later by the death of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother at the age of 101 (making her the longest lived royal in British History).

Art and science

The relationship between two of the greatest modern masters is celebrated in Tate Modern's blockbuster exhibition Matisse Picasso. By exhibiting their works side-by-side, the show revealed the relationship between the two artists from 1906-54.
The 'Party at the Palace' concert in celebration of the Queen's Jubilee brings together stars from the last 50 years of Pop: Paul McCartney, Tom Jones, Brian Wilson, Queen, Ozzy Osbourne and Elton John.

International

Terrorist bombing attacks on the Island of Bali in Indonesia leave 202 people dead, including 25 Britons. The three attacks took place in a bar, outside a nightclub and outside the United States consulate, and were aimed at foreign tourists, although many locals were also killed or injured. The Islamist group Jemaah Islamiyah were found guilty of perpetrating the attacks.
