Video: British Summer Time - The man who has to change 4,000 timepieces


March 27 marks the start of British Summer Time - and the 100th anniversary of the country first adjusting the clocks.

On Easter Sunday, households across the UK will be putting their watches and clocks forward an hour.

But while for most people it is a two-minute job to change all the timepieces in their house, spare a thought for Alan Midleton.

He is the curator at the British Horological Institute museum trust, which has around 4,000 watches and clocks, and is responsible for winding and adjusting all the items on display.
