BBC documentary: Alchemists Of Sound

It's weekend ahead and you probably have some spare time at your hands, so here's to all couch potatoes.

The grand old lady BBC has another documentary about the very beginnings of sound design called "Alchemists Of Sound". The documentary is from 2003 and sheds some light on the background of sound design with regards to TV and radio shows from the very beginnings.

If you prefer to download all the single parts (read: you want to watch it on your mobile or iPod, for example) rather than viewing it on YT, here's how you can do it:
simply add "pwn" in front of the links starting with "youtube" and you'll be presented a link where you can download a copy in the desired format (FLV or MP4).


Here are the links to the respective parts of "Alchemists Of Sound": (1), (2), (3), (4), (5), (6)
Hope I'm not infringing the BBC's copyrights here but, on the other hand, the documentary is still up on YT although it's been linked to on MetaFilter some days ago already.

Have a nice weekend!
