SUN Most of us remember we get an extra hour in bed tonight - SUN but when we get up for work on Monday morning will it be SUN lighter or darker? Why do we bother to change the clocks? SUN Should we change our time-zone and join Central European SUN Time and consign GMT to the past? And what exactly is time? SUN Can it be controlled or does it control us as it marches on SUN relentlessly making us older day by day? All these ideas SUN have been debated throughout the years, but are we any SUN nearer being able to define or explain what time is? SUN With help from curators at the Royal Greenwich Observatory, SUN Sean Street's journey into past recordings takes him SUN backwards and forward across the many time-zones of Russia, SUN into China's single time-zone, to Venezuela's deliberately SUN political adoption of a half-hour time-zone and to Samoa, SUN who recently travelled forward in time by losing a whole SUN day.

TUE Rudy's Rare Records is a tiny down at heel old reggae record TUE shop in Birmingham - one of a dying breed; a place with real TUE soul, stacked with piles of vinyl, where the slogan is "if TUE we don't have it - them don't mek it". It's owned by the TUE charismatic, irrepressible Rudy Sharpe (Larrington Walker), TUE reluctantly helped out by his long-suffering neurotic son TUE Adam (Lenny Henry) and Handsworth's first, black, surly TUE girly goth, Tasha (Natasha Godfrey). Rudy has recently TUE married his long-term love interest Doreen (Claire Benedict) TUE which is leaving his best friend Clifton (Jeffery Kissoon) TUE feeling left out. TUE Adam ............
