British Summer Time ends early at The Science Museum

British Summer Time comes to an end this weekend, but one London museum has so many clocks, it's already started the laborious process of resetting them all.

The Science Museum has a gallery containing 500 timepieces, from sand-glasses to sundials, dating back hundreds of years.
