Big Ben represents British classical culture, is the symbol of London and the pride of the British people. In the films set in London, almost without exception, the figure of Big Ben will appear. In the movie “the thirty ninth step”, the hero hangs his hands on the hour hand of Big Ben and fights to the death with the gangster who made the explosion. Every second of the minute hand is frightening.
The city of London weighs about 13.5 square meters and has four magnificent clock faces. Big Ben has been telling the time for the city of London since 1859. It rings every hour according to Greenwich mean time. Up to now, it has been nearly a century and a half, although it has been split and recast twice during this period. Now Big Ben’s bell is still clear and beautiful.
