It's almost baffling to think that despite the many ways we can check the time, especially in our display-saturated era, BT's speaking clock still receives roughly 12 million calls each year.

Dial 123 on most phones and you'll hear the voice of Sara Mendes da Costa telling you what's what 'at the third stroke...' Her almost decade-long tenure will come to an end this year, though, as BT has launched a competition to find the speaking clock's next and fifth 'permanent' voice.
