"Following our successful experiment offering A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols in surround sound at Christmas, we are now giving you the chance to hear a drama in surround sound. This time it will be available to download.
There are two versions of Private Peaceful to try, one is designed for use with normal surround sound speakers and the other gives an impression of listening on surround sound speakers using normal headphones."
(Play includes songs by Coope Boyes & Simpson)

I remember an experimental binaural broadcast in the 1980s with Andrew Sachs as a fugitive / escapee. No dialogue - just Sachs recorded scambling through hedges and undergrowth for 40 minutes. Also at the Early Music Fair at the Royal Horticulural Hall, circa 1982 or so, I remember BBC Radio 3 outside broadcasrt unit using binaural microphones to capture the general racket, including yours truly on a Chris Eaton Hurdy Gurdy with a very young Nigel Eaton looking on, frankly baffled by my approach to the instrument. But back then things were far from standardised...
Here's a good one - for a great ambient Surround Sound on your stereo wire up a third speaker to the positive terminals of the L-R speakers and place it equilaterally in the room in relation to the others. I think this is an old Eno trick..
