The Republican National Convention is under way in Tampa, Florida, with conservatives from around the US gathered to celebrate Mitt Romney's nomination as their candidate to challenge President Barack Obama for the White House.
But one prominent Republican, former President George W Bush, did not attend the gala.
People at the convention recall the man and discuss Mr Bush's legacy.
