    clip from a radio program

    A quarter of a million will be descending on the Big Ben, whose chime will ____ the start of 2014.

    According to this clip, what is the missing word above? I cannot hear it clearly. Is it "hail"?

    Thanks for your help!

    Re: clip from a radio program

    '...descending on the Big Ben' is an odd phrase. The definite article is incorrect and Big Ben is a bell in a clock tower 315 feet (96m) high.
