That is what Minister already said, though it's not specifically wordclock that you need, what you need is Video sync (PAL black), which is just a pulse, all the machine need to run from in order for them to not drift. The Rosendahl will work, but you should have used that while recording, it probably won't solve your problem now.

What camera did you use? Does your camera have options to sync to external equipment? Most consumer camera's cannot sync to anything. But like I said earlier, if you make short runs, actually I tried up to an hour, with most modern stuff, if you have marked a start with a clapper they'll run quite in sync for a while if you run them free of videosync. If you can sync it to other equipment, using the Rosendahl is a good solution.
