Clock watching: there's going to be a live stream of the Big Ben repairs

Isabelle Aron

Exhausted all the best boxsets on Netflix? Don't worry, because Londoners are about to be treated to some pretty nail-biting viewing. Starting early next year, Big Ben will be undergoing a three-year conservation and repair programme – and it's just been announced that the whole thing will be live-streamed for 24-hours a day. But don't get too excited – Big Ben's bongs will stop chiming while the works are carried out, so you'll basically be watching a stopped clock. Thrilling stuff.
