    Re: At the centre of time
    From: Brad Morris

    Interesting point regarding the shift of the prime meridian.  I encountered 
    the same thing when I was there, my GPS did not agree with the stripe in the 
    courtyard.  Aside from the political envy expressed by one reviewer as to why 
    the prime meridian shifted, what were the reasons for that shift?
    
    Best Regards
    Brad

    At the centre of time

    Without it international travel would be in turmoil and calling friends in faraway
    places at the right time impossible. Exactly 125 years after the Greenwich Meridian
    line was drawn, how and why did Britain become the centre of time?
