Five events that changed Britain forever?

Dan Snow, historian, and reporter for BBC 1's 'The One Show', has recently reported upon 5 events that changed Britain forever. His list contains:
  • The first passenger steam train
  • The day the Windrush arrived
  • The day the Magna Carta was sealed
  • The day the Romans invaded
  • The day the East India Company got its charter
I would be fascinated to hear what people think about these choices, I'm still pondering my response currently.
