Last Updated: 1:32am BSTĀ 23/10/2006

A competition is being launched today to find a new voice for the speaking clock after 21 years.
The public will be invited to submit telephone recordings, with the proceeds of each call going to Children In Need.
The result will be announced during BBC1's Children In Need night on Nov 17. The winner will become only the fourth person in history to land the job.
Current "clock" Brian Cobby, 77, who is retiring, says judge will be looking for a voice with clarity and warmth.
