From Concorde to the classic red phone box, the ten best examples of British design were named yesterday.
The list of icons includes the Midland-made Mini and Spitfire and the Routemaster bus.
It also contains two video games - Tomb Raider and the ultra-violent Grand Theft Auto. The top ten was chosen in a public poll organised by BBC2's The Culture Show in conjunction with the Design Museum.
The public were asked to vote for the best example of British design since 1900.
Oldest in the list is the red K2 telephone kiosk, designed in 1926 by Giles Gilbert Scott.
Most recent is the notorious Grand Theft Auto video game, which first appeared in 1997.
Each design was championed on last night's show by a public figure.
Viewers will vote for their favourite and the winner will be announced on the programme on March 16.
The full top ten is:
* K2 telephone kiosk (1926) designed by Giles Gilbert Scott
* London Underground map (1931) by Harry Beck
* Catseye (1932-34) by Percy Shaw
* Supermarine Spitfire aircraft (1934-35) by Reginald Mitchell
* Routemaster bus (1947-56) by Douglas Scott
* Mini (1957-59) by Alec Issigonis
* Concorde (1969-76) by British Aerospace Corporation with Aerospatiale.
Designs which failed to make the list include the E-Type Jaguar, the pocket calculator, the Raleigh Chopper and the cover of the Beatles' Sergeant Pepper album.
