Emett water clock...and other clocks


Recommended Posts

I was on Notts TV this evening.  The schedule says it was Episode 448.  It should be on again at 10pm tonight (my bit around 10:45pm) and repeated:

Tomorrow 9:00am (my bit around 9:45am)

Sunday 9:00am (my bit around 9:45am).

Monday 7:00am (my bit around 7:45am)

Monday 8:00am (my bit around 8:45am)

 

The Vic Centre management surprised me by presenting me with a really nice acrylic painting by local artist Molly Moss of me standing aside the clock (explains the request for a photo of me last year on one of the days I was there to fix it!)

Just watched your piece on Notts tv., Mr.Engineer, or may I now call you Peter? A most interesting film for this exile to watch. Also now to be able to put a face to a post. Now I know a tv personality. Can I have your autograph?

I had a phone call yesterday from Sonia Kataria (BBC online content) to chat about my involvement with the clock and she's posted this article:

Separately, I had a phone call from BBC Radio Nottingham and recorded something that will go out in their weekend bulletins (I didn't think to ask what time to listen)
