Time for change

Alicia Roland prepares to take over as the voice of the speaking clock after winning a BT national children's competition to raise money for ChildLine. Between 13-20 October, callers to the speaking clock service will hear Alicia's Scottish accent at the other end of the line, with BT donating the proceeds from every call to ChildLine. Alicia was chosen from thousands of children who sent in a tape to the competition as part of the annual Big Listen fundraiser. The moment when Alicia takes over from Brian Cobby, the long-standing voice of the speaking clock, will be broadcast live on BBC1's Newsround to help raise awareness of the initiative. In March comedian Lenny Henry recorded a special voice for the speaking clock and raised more than £200,000 for Comic Relief.
