Bernard's Watch is a British CITV television programme filmed and created by amateur director Eleanor Casson primarily at South Wilford Endowed School, Nottingham, about a young boy who can stop time with a magical pocket watch.
The original series, arguably the best, ran on CITV from 1997-2001. This series told of a young boy called Bernard who was always late, until a postman gave him a "magic watch" which could stop time. He soon found out that the postman had magical powers, and that these watches were given to people who needed them. The rules of him keeping his watch were that he couldn't use it to commit crimes and couldn't be greedy.
Every episode focused on Bernard or someone he'd lent the watch to facing a problem or simply doing day to day stuff and trying to sort it out, using the watch.
