When local standard time is about to reach
Sunday, 27 March 2016, 01:00:00 clocks are turned forward 1 hour to
Sunday, 27 March 2016, 02:00:00 local daylight time instead

Sunrise at 0656 and sunset at 1938 will be about 1 hour later on 27 Mar 2016 than the day before. There will be more light in the evening.

So what is Daylight Saving Time?

Daylight saving time (DST) or summer time is the practice of advancing clocks during summer months by one hour so that in the evening daylight is experienced an hour longer, and normal sunrise times are sacrificed.

Typically, regions with summer time adjust clocks forward one hour close to the start of spring and adjust them backward in the autumn to standard time.

Daylight Saving: Whose idea was it?

During the nine years he spent as American ambassador to France, American inventor and politician Benjamin Franklin wrote an essay called "An Economical Project for Diminishing the Cost of Light" to the editor of The Journal of Paris in 1784.
