Clocks change 2020: When do the clocks change?


Fast forward to the 20th century, a man called William Willett introduced the idea of Daylight Saving Time in Britain in 1907.

In the pamphlet, Willett wrote: “Nevertheless, standard time remains so fixed, that for nearly half the year the sun shines upon the land for several hours each day while we are asleep, and is rapidly nearing the horizon, having already passed its western limit, when we reach home after the work of the day is over.

“Under the most favourable circumstances, there then remains only a brief spell of declining daylight in which to spend the short period of leisure at our disposal.”

Daylight savings became law in 1916 and was put in place primarily to stop people wasting vital working hours of light during summer mornings.
