Radio Actuality Recordings from the BBC

Another archive of gems - the BBC Sound Archives - a small fraction of which is on snippet 'view.' See:

http://www.soundsurvey.org.uk/index.php/survey/radio_actuality_recordings/

====

RADIO ACTUALITY MEANS sound recorded on location. With the kind permission of BBC Worldwide, the London Sound Survey is able to present a collection of recordings for radio that were made in and around London during the 1930s and 1940s.

They bring to life some of the everyday voices and circumstances of the time. Many are unedited rushes and others never made it onto air, but all have been digitised for the first time from their original 78 rpm transcription discs. More will be added over the coming months.

====

Hopefully it wont be too long before more programmes made by the BBC will be online such as the recordings collected by Bob Copper and others.

Great stuff! That Tiny Tim song - "If We Hadn't Any Ladies In The World "- is one I'm just going to have to learn!

youtube has a better recording of James Morrison's 1928 Columbia recording of the tune than the one they link on the Irish Traditional Music Archive site: If We Hadn't Any Women In The World.


The song appears to have been written by Charles Collins in 1905 (BL catalogue), but I haven't found a copy online yet.

Whilst they state that there are strict copyright conditions on listening to the audio files, it is possible to capture them with Audacity and 'Stereo Mix' for input.

My view on this is that having paid the high price for a license fee which the Beeb wastes on such offensive idiots as Clarkson et al, I choose to put my license fee towards worthwhile projects such as the Sound Archive. So I deem the recordings to belong to all license fee payers. So I have no problems with making copies of said files.

I'm not talking about ripping off living artists such as those in the folk scene, but the above recordings are of street sounds and of folks who would never have gotten paid for their 'sounds.'
