Central Europe: Spring forward on Sunday
March 29, 2003
Spring comes to Central Europe one week earlier than in the United States, with clocks moving forward one hour Sunday morning.
Daylight-saving time occurs a week later, on April 6, in the United States.
Set clocks one hour ahead just before bed Saturday night, since the change starts at 2 a.m. Sunday.
Some programs on American Forces Network will be off by an hour for one week.
“All live programs played from the States, in both television and radio, will be one hour later until that following Sunday,” Roger Williams, AFN spokesman, said.
“The time change won’t affect prime time programs, because those are prerecorded. Only the live events will be affected,” he said.
Expect one-hour delays throughout the week on many Power Network radio programs, as well as Morning News Watch features and late night shows from the States on AFN television network stations.
Once the U.S. catches up, April 6 programming will resume to normal schedules.
Change affects AFN
Because of the seven-hour time difference between Central Europe and the East Coast in the States, some programs on AFN radio will air an hour later in Europe. For the next week:
Monday through Friday: Army Pentagon News will air at 7:35 a.m.; Paul Harvey’s News will air at 6:45 a.m.; Doctor Laura Schlessinger will air at 8 p.m.; Talk of the Nation will begin at 9 p.m.; Rush Limbaugh will start at 7 p.m.
On Sunday: NPR’s Prairie Home Companion will air from 1-3 p.m.; and Weekend Edition Sunday runs from 3-5 p.m.
