Default Big Ben

Is there a way to watch the New Year's Eve Big Ben chimes on the internet? The New Year just ain't the same without Big Ben....it's a bit of an anti-climax actually. I'd love to watch it live and grab some of the atmosphere.

Hope someone comes up with an answer, would like to see that myself. I have mostly got over the frequent homesickness but this was my first Christmas away from family and the UK, and to be frank, it sucked.....

I know! But really I'd rather celebrate it at 7pm the British way and then again with the anti-climatic American way at midnight. The first chime of Big Ben always brings a tear to my eye.

Houston has sucked all the intelligence out of you!

Last year one of the cable news channels was going country by country on the hour. 5pm was something like Helsinki, 6pm was Berlin, 7pm was London etc. etc... Dont know whether they are going to do it again (not that I can remember if it was MSNBC, Faux News or CNN)

they usually go around the world at new year on tv or simply print this out and place one of those little jingle bells in side before assembling it. give it a shake at 7pm est.... nearly as good
