[00:14.85]On Wednesday evening we went to the Town Hall.
[00:19.67]It was the last day of the year
[00:22.99]and an large crowd of people had gathered under the Town Hall clock.
[00:26.68]It would strike twelve in twenty minutes' time.
[00:31.18]Fifteen minutes passed and then,at five to twelve,the clock stopped.
[00:38.53]The big minute hand did not move.We waited and waited,but nothing happened.
[00:44.56]Suddenly someone shouted,
[00:47.42]'It's two minutes past twelve! The clock has stopped!'
[00:52.51]I looked at my watch.It was true.The big clock refused to welcome the New Year.
[01:00.91]At that moment, everybody began to laugh and sing.
