It’s that time of year when we move to British Summer Time.

But pres enthusiasts who stayed up to see the BBC Two clock get an on air adjustment would be sorely disappointed.

But there is something slightly odd about the clock: notice the hour markings are a lighter shade of orange than usual – compare with the colour of the central dot. We don’t think it’s an issue with the tape recording.

[00:00:00] CLOCK: announcer Peter Bolgar points out that the BBC Two clock has already been moved forward by an hour. And of course reminds viewers that although BBC Two is closing down, BBC Radio 2 is on air throughout the night.
