    BBC Tomorrow's World


    Hello

    This new BBC podcast uses loads of freesound sounds and has a credit to freesound at the end of each show.

    The sound list is here http://downloads.bbc.co.uk/learning/tomorrowsworld/TW_FreesoundList.pdf

    Direct link to Episode 1: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p05jngwy
    Direct link to Episode 2: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p05jnlrm

    The sound design is all binaural so listen with your best headphones.

    I'm one of the producers and the sound designer for the BBC.

    I wanted to say a massive thank you to the freesound community. You are a source of endless inspiration and variety that really gets my creative juices flowing. I love you guys.

    I'm ashamed to say that although I've had an account here for 11 years, 6 months I have yet to upload anything. I promise to correct that once all the work of making the rest of this series is out of the way. I'll dig through the pile of off-cuts and share them.

    Anyway, thanks again.

    Thank you Dave & BBC.

    And also thanks to all the Freesound contributors.

    Wait a damn minute!
    Yay!! I'm on page 19 of the List!

    I'd like to go into Trump mode and say-
    "These are good people who with my help did a wonderful thing. I put a lot of hard work into this. They couldn’t have done it without me BIG!" (yup, 140 characters)

    Seriously, it's great to see so many freesounders, icons and occasional creators gathered in one place.

    What a lovely response! thanks all.

    I'm about half way through editing the series (8 shows) at the moment so that list will grow and grow.

    So far I have exclusively used Freesound sounds. I hope to make it to the end maintaining that purity!

    Timbre, your TARDIS - LOL That's exactly what I thought when I used it (Out in a month Ep4 has a time travel sequence) I needed to create the idea of time travel without breaking the 4th wall (do we have that in sound?) too much. The real TARDIS sound would have been too distracting, but your sound brings the idea into the listeners head without actually distracting from the story. It's also mixed with several other sounds.

    In general, I use a sort of wall of sound approach. Some sequences have as many as 30 sounds running at the same time. The binaural space kind of glues it all together.

    These first two were actually kind of pilot episodes.

    The upcoming third episode is around an hour long and contains the most complex sound design I've ever attempted, It's going to be crazy smile

    Anyhoo, back to the edit!

    Thanks again.

    Respect to all, above mentioned Freesounders, but so glad not to be on the "You make, we take and give you...credit" list.

    Your sincerely.

    Or, just a too commie, or too vain.

    Hi Goran, the BBC is the UK's state owned broadcaster. It is paid for by a special tax on houses with televisions in them. No advertising at all within the UK. I think that the BBC sells things like Doctor Who to other TV channels around the world, but this podcast is not in any way connected to that commercial stuff.

    This is part of the BBC's education remit. It will generate no income, will never promote a commercial product or service and is available free of charge to anyone, anywhere, who wants to download it.

    We only promote two things, science and Freesound smile

    That feels pretty commie to me!

    With the greatest of respect,
    Comrade Dave

    Hey, can't believe I made it to the list too... I thought my sounds were generally too weird to be useful...

    Dave, looking forward to seeing (hearing) your sounds here at Freesound.
    It will be quite an honour actually to have some sounds here that were created by the BBC sound experts - The BBC has a long tradition of sound design!

    That is also the beauty of the internet. Nowadays any of us can find that one of his/hers sounds have been used on a music piece, TV show, etc - The internet has made the world smaller. And that is a good thing.

    I want to believe.

    Hi Dave.

    Nothing personal, as I am speak-write on my own behalf, not on Freesound.org.

    I used to live in the UK. and paid for my radio/ tv taxes.

    My point was, that contributers, or stuff (a few Spanish, and couple of international blokes) who voluntarlay work, and starving for Freesound.org should be, donated or promoted, at lest from big BBC in more propriated way, then PDF file list, what (to be fair) nobody reads.
    All the best,

    Goran-z2

    I do understand your point Goran. I have put a credit to Freesound in the actual show audio directing people on how to find the list. It's at the end of every show. I wish I could list every sound there individually but there are so many that it would be too long.

    Hopefully the general credit will help Freesound in its mission.

    Hello AlienXXX, if that's your real name.

    The weirder the better mate!

    That's actually what I love about Freesound - you start searching for something specific but then some wierd little gem of a sound that you would never find anywhere else pops up.

    I look forward to contributing. There are whole sections of sound design that I'm dropping to bring the shows down in length. You can have the lot at the end.

    I actually went down to BBC Maida Vale a few years ago, that's where The BBC Radiophonic Workshop where based. They made the original TARDIS sound for example.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBC_Radiophonic_Workshop

    Anyway, I went down there on a personal pilgrimage. I just wanted to stand in the room where they did it and enjoy the vibes. But not one person in the building knew where they had been based sad

    I still enjoyed the vibes though.

    Cheers

    Happy for understanding and so pleased BBC that will consider that, behind of each of that little sound, stands real person who created it.

    I personally am happy with a mention on a pdf file.
    And I am even happier if Freesound is getting some exposure / visibility / advertising out there on the credits in a more visible format.

    No, AlienXXX is not my real name. I have to use a different name for my internet sonic activities so that my many fans cannot find me in real life! grin

    I want to believe.

    I think most consumers don't watch credits on TV progs anyway. Easier to skip than ever now with 10000 channels to surf, flick, stream, PVR etc. They feel disappointed if expecting 1hour entertainment they get 15min promo 30min content and 15min of rolling credits.

    If you're impressed by a show you check the credits and follow/search the talent behind the production.

    I think a Freesound on-screen or audio credit and pdf link a perfectly good compromise - not diluting the programme but still informing anyone interested enough.

    Anyway, if it's important to them, contributors can't deny they're given the chance to put "As heard on the BBC" on their CV without telling fibs.

    HaHaa.. So when we read the headline "Alien accosted by Audio Groupies." we'll know Freesound got hacked and Wikileaks undermined your strategy.
