[00:00:00] CLOCK: announcer Roger Maude reminds viewers to put clocks and watches forward one hour. The BBC One clock is moved forward one hour. And there’s a pointer in the direction of BBC Two, where the film Poison Pen is fifteen minutes in.

[00:01:05] IDENT: with all the excitement of adjusting the BBC One clock, Roger omitted to turn up the fader for the National Anthem. It finally kicks in at 00:01:13.
