I always like the end of year, when we look back, reflect and remember the past 12 months.
Sadly 2010 has lost some great names across all sorts of professions and walks of life but the BBC has compiled an audio slideshow to remember those in the public eye we lost this year.
The BBC catches the balance of not being too emotional and not too subdued, managing to take us through a snapshot of each characters career.
The audio,authentic of their era, helps the listener/viewer cast their minds back to the time these popular figures were in the limelight.
Over the course of the year it is very easy to forgot but this slideshow helps you connect, remember and appreciate their lives.
