Can you really trust your smartphone / digital radio / iPad or other fancy device to understand British Summer Time and the clocks going forward once a year? And that it is today of all days?

Well, if you are suffering from that confusion (and you are certainly not alone), let us help you work out what time it is now the clocks have gone forward.

When do we have to do this all again?

The clocks always go forward an hour on the last weekend in March in spring and go back on the final weekend of October in autumn.
