There's no analogue TV in the UK anymore, the reason the second hand was dropped is the time delay between Freeview SD, Freeview HD, Sky and cable, all 4 services would show a different time, and all 4 would be wrong by at least a couple of seconds, possibly more.

FM is real time, as near as makes very little difference, DAB is out by at least a few seconds, and BBC Sounds App can be up to 30 seconds late, so if you miss an important wicket on TMS you just log into BBC Sounds and hear it again...
