As the clocks strike midnight on 31st December 2008, fireworks explode above Edinburgh Castle and crowds at the Hogmanay street party join hands and sing in Auld Lang Syne to start off 2009.

The Auld Lang Syne video which appears here was shown for the first time at the stroke of midnight on television and on screens at the street party.
