The incredible story of the man who invented the clockwork radio, the stunningly simple idea that has revolutionised the lives of millions.

Described by some as a genius and others a hero, Trevor Baylis is without question an extraordinarily talented man. Able to conjure technological marvels from the bits and pieces lying around his Aladdin s Cave of a workshop, he is perhaps everything we expect an inventor to be: eccentric yet prodigiously ingenious and original. CLOCK THIS is a revealing look at the life of the man responsible for one of this century s most important inventions.
