Keeping to Time

01 November 2022

Following on from our short video focussed on the library and archive, the Master Dr James Nye and Curator Anna Rolls went behind the scenes this time at the Clockmakers' Museum. Early one morning in September they met Francis Brodie, who completes a weekly winding round, as well as conducting servicing and conservation work, among the collections in South Kensington. Some of the conversation was captured in some short clips which we have edited together. We hope you enjoy the result, which can be found here:
