Thanks John, yes I'm real.
The 1978 date is correct, I'm looking for the article to quote. Prior to the decree, France maintained a roughly twelve and a half minute offset. I always was struck by this as the BIPM is located in France, and has been for many years. Disagreement on the location of the prime meridian perhaps?
Wow, I didn't expect that much response for a trivia question.
