DIY Walk on the Wild Side
Above is a little look at how Walk on the Wild Side is made. Fancy having a go yourself? Could you put words in the mouth of a seagull, or a donkey? Now's your chance to find out! The Walk on the Wild Side team have made four clips available for you to download so that you can add your own voiceovers.
How it works
- Download the footage to your computer.
- Add your voiceover (see our tips for help).
- Upload it your favourite video hosting website - such as YouTube or Vimeo.
- Send us the link so we can watch it!
If we like your video, we may embed it on this blog, or ask you to send us the video file to publish on the Walk on the Wildside programme page - and elsewhere! You will of course be credited for your work.
So, choose a clip below and follow the instructions to download it to your computer. It goes without saying, you'll also need a microphone handy.

A few important tips
Want to have a go at this but don't know where to start? Good news! It's likely your home computer already has a basic video editing programme on it.
If you use Mac OS, this will be iMovie (here's how to record a voiceover in iMovie '09).
If you use Windows, this will be Windows Movie Maker (try your Accessories folder - here's how add 'narration' in WMM for Windows XP).
What to do with your video
Once you've uploaded your video and shown all your mates, send us the link to where you've put it.

About the BBC Comedy Asset Licence
What is the BBC Comedy Asset Licence?
The BBC Comedy Asset Licence contains the legal rules that you must comply with in order to use and download any material provided by the BBC Comedy website (the "BBC Comedy Content").
How does the BBC Comedy Asset Licence differ from a Creative Commons Licence?
The BBC Comedy Asset Licence is heavily inspired by the Creative Commons Licences. The BBC has additional requirements, however, that need to be reflected in the terms under which it licences content. The most obvious is the No Endorsement requirement.
In addition, the BBC Comedy Asset Licence seeks to protect the Licensor's moral right of integrity, that is, the right not to have a work treated in a derogatory or objectionable way.
How will the BBC Comedy Asset Licence benefit those who created the content in the first place?
All BBC Comedy Content made available under the terms of the BBC Comedy Asset Licence has been rights cleared. If a user wishes to make commercial use of any BBC Comedy Content, a separate licence would be required, and a fee would be payable. For details and prices please visit BBC Worldwide's commercial stock website, BBC Motion Gallery.
Here it is - the licence you've all been waiting for!
This means that you may use material provided by the BBC Comedy website ("BBC Comedy Content") for your own personal use and for not-for-profit educational use but you can't sell or profit financially in any way from the use of BBC Comedy Content.
This means that BBC Comedy Content is made available to you under the terms set out in the BBC Comedy Licence and if you wish to use the BBC Comedy Content you must then licence anything you create or produce using the BBC Comedy Content (i.e a Derivative Work) under the same BBC Comedy Licence. It's simple!
It's your chance to make sure everyone knows what you've done, but you ALSO need to make sure that everyone who has contributed to a piece of content (a Derivative Work) is credited too. It's up to you how creatively you acknowledge others' contributions!
No Endorsement and No derogatory use
The BBC Comedy Content is provided to allow you to get creative with content, not for campaigning, soapboxing or to defame others! So don't use it to promote political, charitable, or other campaigning purposes and remember to treat others and their work in the way that you'd expect them to treat you and your work... with respect!
