In Pictures: BBC Sound Effects Room (Circa 1920)


Wonderful picture collection of a classic BBC sound effects room.

“At the BBC a sound effects room used from the 1920s onwards was full of an eclectic mix of items from bells to brooms used to create the noises that brought radio alive for the population. It was a time when the majority of people didn’t have a television, but radios were in almost every household by the 40s.”
