"the bongs of Big Ben"

Radio This is probably outrageous of me, but one of the reasons I listen to Radio 4 is because it has nothing to do with where I live, for the escapism and wistful reminder that there is a life elsewhere. My favourite moment every day is the atmospheric pause at the end of PM and just before the bongs of Big Ben heralding the Six O'Clock News when you can hear the noise of the traffic in Parliament Square, not least because it also reminds me of a happy time spent there a couple of years ago with a good friend eating lunch [originally posted my me in comments of this Guardian piece].
