A pair of time-related videos in my recommendations today, Monday

At 16:00 BST (+01), Tom Scott published a video called "How does Britain
know what time it is?" about the radio time broadcasts from the UK's
National Physical Laboratory, which disseminates UTC(NPL).
Typical of his attention to detail, the wall clock Tom holds continues to
tick true to time throughout the entire video, even as it cuts away to
interview shots and B-roll.

A couple hours later, at 18:00 BST, the British comedy panel quiz show "QI"
published a clip of their episode "Rude", originally aired 2020-05-28, in
which the panel discusses, among other things, how Denmark hasn't updated
its laws to officially use UTC instead of Mean Solar Time.
