Puzzles Evening (Part 1)

Since we had our puzzles evening on Thursday (9th May), I thought I'd put the puzzles online too. Just two in each post. The answers are included below, but in white. If you highlight the relevant area with your mouse, you'll be able to see the answers.

Puzzle #1: White to move
Highlight below for the answer
--------------------------------------
1.Qg5g6 (not Qxg5 since Rxe8 is mate)
2.Qh6gxf5
3.Rg4+fxg4
4.Bxh7+Kh8
5.Bg6+Kg8
6.Qh7+Kf8
7.Qxf7#
--------------------------------------

Puzzle #2: White to move

Highlight below for the answer
--------------------------------------
1.Rb7Qb1 (if Rxb7 then e8=Q followed by Qe2#)
2.Rxb1Nxb1
3.g4+ (if f6 then Kg6)Kxg4
4.f6
White is a rook behind, but his pawns are unstoppable.
