Clocks Go Back this Weekend
Added on Friday 27th October

This weekend the UK reverts to GMT at 2am on Sunday October 29th. This is a legacy from WW1 and the 1916 Summertime Act. It was first introduced by Germany and Austria and then the UK followed suit to save on coal usage. The UK has continued ever since with some variations, although it became more globally practised during the energy crisis of the 1970's.  In 1940 the clocks weren't put back so we stayed 1 hour ahead of GMT. In the spring of 1941 the clocks were put forward one hour so we were then 2 hours ahead of  GMT until 1947 when the clocks were put back. In 1968 there was a 3 year experiment when the clocks were put forward , [GMT +1 - referred to as Bristish Standard Time] and not back again until October 1971 after Parliament could not decide if it had been beneficial or not so abandoned the experiment.
