A sequence of poetry, prose and music on the theme of clocks and timekeeping, with readings by Toby Jones and Romola Garai.
Clockwise: The award-winning actors Toby Jones and Romola Garai explore our obsession with clocks and timekeeping. The imperious shrilling of the alarm clock; the way ticking sometimes sounds like fate approaching; the moments elongated or abbreviated by emotion: the way the imagination tends to go blank before the notion of eternity: these are all part of a meditation on why and how we measure time - from Handel's pieces for musical clocks to St Augustine's Confessions ... and all in the time it takes your average chronometer to tick from five thirty in the evening to six forty-five.
Producer: Zahid Warley.
