The judges hailed Sir John for doing a "superb job" in a tough industry - placing Britain at the forefront of the aeronautical engine industry.
His efforts had also helped generate a rise in the wealth and productivity of the city of Derby, where Rolls-Royce has its main engineering base. The judges cited Rolls-Royce provision of the Trent engine for the new Airbus this year as "a fantastic achievement". Michael Spencer is the man behind the world's largest inter-dealer money broker and, not surprisingly, one of the richest men in Britain. The judges described Mr Spencer as a "hugely successfully entrepreneur", who had overseen one of the few businesses to do well this year despite the credit crunch - reinforcing his reputation as one of the most influential men in the City of London.
Miss Chakrabarti has run Liberty, the civil liberties pressure group, since After graduating from the London School of Economics, she worked as a barrister at the Home Office, before joining Liberty in She spent the next two years campaigning against the anti-terrorist measures that followed the September 11 terrorist attacks and is a prominent opponent of the Government's ID card proposals.
The judges described her as a woman who has had an "incredible impact" and who is a "consummate campaigner". Britain's most famous living adventurer, Sir Ranulph was the first man to travel from the North Pole to the South Pole covering 52, miles in the process , using surface transport alone and the first man to cross the Antarctic by foot.

In , despite having a double heart bypass operation just four months earlier, Sir Ranulph managed to complete seven marathons in seven days on seven continents, raising thousands of pounds for the British Heart Foundation. In March this year, despite a lifelong fear of heights, he undertook the challenge to climb the Eiger by its daunting north face. The judges were impressed by a character who "could only be British" and who "couldn't come from anywhere else".
They said he was "a fantastic illustration of what can be achieved" and had set an example to many people that there is life after bypass surgery - particularly during his epic week of marathons. The combination of his "so very British" attributes and his phenomenal achievements made him an obvious choice for the shortlist. In October last year, Marion Janner set up Star Wards following her time as a detained psychiatric inpatient. The project works with mental health trusts to improve inpatients' daily experiences and treatment.
Star Wards aims to inspire better therapy for patients, making best use of their time and skills and those of staff. To date, almost wards have joined the scheme, which has translated into thousands of inpatients having many more therapeutic, social and recreational opportunities. One matron wrote: "In my opinion every acute ward in the country should implement as many of the Star Wards ideas as they possibly can. I have never known an initiative to be met with such enthusiasm by the staff that actually work on our wards.
Somehow it manages to combine improvements in the quality of care for patients with improvements in job satisfaction for our front line staff - a winning combination". The judges praised an extraordinary woman who "saw a need and did something about it" - tackling an unfashionable area that "most people don't want to talk about".

The judges said Boyd had "kept a low profile but quietly brought the Royal Shakespeare Company back to its greatness" and managed to place Shakespeare back at "the top of the tree". Comedian, writer, actor, filmmaker, television personality - Stephen Fry is one of the great British polymaths. As one half of the Fry and Laurie double act, he has appeared in A Bit of Fry and Laurie and Jeeves and Wooster, while also bringing Oscar Wilde to life in the cinema and making a successful career as a novelist. Fry has spoken publicly about his experience with bipolar disorder and has presented a documentary about it, Stephen Fry: The Secret Life of the Manic-Depressive.
The two-part series was broadcast in , repeated in March as part of the BBC's programming in aid of Comic Relief. The judges agreed that Fry is "the epitome of everything British, both modern and old" and - despite his huge intellect - a man who can communicate in a down to earth manner. Jonathan Ive is renowned as the principal designer behind the iMac, iPod and the iPhone.
He joined Apple's design team in when the company was at its lowest ebb. On an executive level Steve Jobs had been ousted in a boardroom coup and the company became embroiled in a bitter patent dispute with Microsoft over the Windows operating system. Apple became unprofitable and was losing ground to Windows. This, coupled with embarrassing product recalls, contributed to a business on the brink.
In , Steve Jobs returned to the company and began to revive Apple's fortunes.
Mr Ive was instrumental in this turnaround, fuelling a period of unrivalled creativity and innovation which continues to this day. In , he received the National Design Award in the product design category for his work on the iPhone. The judges said this British design genius had made "a huge, huge impact on the world" by creating "outstanding iconic designs [which] have transformed Apple's technology into must-have everyday consumer items.
