The four faces of the clock are 55 meters above ground. The interior volume of the tower is 4,650 cubic meters At the base of each clock face is a Latin inscription, in gilt letters. It reads - DOMINE SALVAM FAC REGINAM NOSTRAM VICTORIAM PRIMAM, which means "O Lord, keep safe our Queen Victoria the First". Clock Tower is the focus of New Year celebrations in the United Kingdom, with radio and TV stations tuning to its chimes to welcome the start of the year. On Remembrance Day, the chimes of Big Ben are broadcast to mark the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. ITN's "News at Ten" opening sequence features an image of the Clock Tower, with the sound of clock's chimes punctuating the announcement of the news headlines. It has done so, on and off, for the last 41 years. When Ayrton light (a small light at the top of the Clock Tower) is lit, it indicates that either the House of Commons or the House of Lords is sitting. Turret clocks seen around the world have been inspired by the look of the Great Clock of Big Ben.
