Two hundred and fifty Bulletins/Six Pips Newsletters! That is quite a lot of individual Pips! We think this is something worth celebrating so we have expanded the Six Pips to include two special Pips called the leap and the crash. The leap is the seventh Pip broadcast when a lead second occurs, reconciling the atomic clocks with Earth’s rotation. Crashing the pips is when another sound (like a presenter talking) is broadcast at the same time as the pips, the ultimate BBC sin. 250 separate emails marking over 5 years of news from a small independent British watch maker.
