brtv A good piece of radio on the TV - Herbert playing a tiny selection of the British Library’s vast sound library (possibly the first Boiler Room without any sweaty ravers trying to get in shot).

Matthew Herbert will be working through the British Library’s Sound Archive, creating a playlist from a selection of digitised music, sound and spoken word taken from the Library’s collection of 5 million unique sound recordings, 1.7 million physical carriers and more than 40 formats. The show will be presented from the Sound Archive’s transfer studios at the British Library in London. The recordings heard on the show are accessible on the Library’s http://sounds.bl.uk/ website.
