When you visit London, one of the first things you will see is Big Ben, the famous clock which can be heard all over the world on the B.B.C. If the Houses of Parliament had not been burned down in 1834, the great clock would never have been erected. Big Ben takes its name from Sir Benjamin Hall who was responsible for the making of the clock when the new Houses of Parliament were being built. It is not only of immense size, but is extremely accurate as well. Officials from Greenwich Observatory have the clock checked twice a day. On the B.B.C. you can hear the clock when it is actually striking because microphones are connected to the clock tower. Big Ben has rarely gone wrong. Once, however, it failed to give the correct time. A painter who had been working on the tower hung a pot of paint on one of the hands and slowed it down!

当你游览伦敦时,其中的第一件事,你将看到的是大本钟,著名的时钟,可以听到世界各地的英国广播公司如果国会大厦没有被烧毁1834,大时钟不会被竖立。大本钟得名于本杰明·霍尔先生是谁负责制作的时钟时,新的国会大厦正在建造中。这不仅是巨大的规模,但也非常准确。格林尼治天文台的官员们每天检查两次。在英国广播公司可以听到时钟时,它实际上是因为麦克风连接到钟塔。大本钟很少出差错。一次,然而,它没有给予正确的时间。画家谁一直在塔上挂了一罐油漆的一只手,慢下来!
