Bernard’s Watch (ITV 1997-2005, David Peachey, Martin Neil)

This is the tale of a boy with no time to lose – and plenty of time to gain.

Young Bernard, played by David Peachy, stops one day on his way to school to help a woman. As a reward for his good deed, he is given an old-fashioned fob watch. He discovers that this is no ordinary watch – it can actually make time stand still.
