This chapter discusses two state-sponsored interventions in national identity, namely the Millennium Experience and the Festival of Britain. These events show the challenges in managing a public list of English or British representations. The first is in a context of postwar reconstruction, the second is one of cultural globalisation and British devolution, and the third is the Miners' Strike of 1984–5.

Keywords:   state-sponsored interventions, Millennium Experience, Festival of Britain, British representations, postwar reconstruction, cultural globalisation, British devolution, Miners' Strike
