Sounds Treasure




A treasure trove of British history is destined to be lost within the next 15 years.            
The British Library has warned that its unique archive of sound recordings dating back to the 1870s need to be digitised urgently or many will crumble to dust.



The library holds a collection of millions of recordings including the call of now-extinct birds, 40 years-worth of plays and even foghorn sounds.
