Can Time stand still?

See J.B.Joyce, making clocks in Shropshire in 1680, transported into the world of trains, telegraph and ever-faster movement. From clocks on village steeples to railway clocks and civic clocks around the world, what does Time look like? Joyce reacts to specially commissioned photography, capturing urban and rural images of Time.  Marconi rub shoulders with the Romans. How does Time change and how does it change us? With the digital bleep, does Time stand still?
