Noise: A Human History

Noise: A Human History

Prof David Hendy explores how our interactions with sound have shaped us over 100,000 years. Recorded on location around the world and featuring treasures from the British Library Sound Archive, this thirty-part series takes us from prehistory to the present. This is sound as life and death, pleasure and pain, power and revolution.
