    Titles read: '"Old Timers" with the kind permission of The Science Museum, S Kensington & the --- Company of Watchmakers. [timecode obscures titles on vhs copy.] From the dawn of civilisation, time has always worried man (and sometimes woman, too!). Here are some ancient and modern examples of time-keepers.'

    London.

    Various shots of different timepieces, including a water clock, a candle with hours marked on the side, a sand glass, a sinking bowl water clock, and several ornate clocks.

    M/S of the Shell Building in London, seen from the Embankment. Closer shot of the modern clock at the top of the building - still going strong today!
