Discovery, Save Our Sounds Episode 1 of 2

Duration:
28 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 08 July 2009

Save our sounds: In the first programme, acoustician Trevor Cox joins a soundwalk in central London and explores the world of acoustic ecology. Trevor meets artists and city planners to discuss how sound influences our lives and affects our well being. Are cities getting noisier or is it just that we're losing the quieter places we once had – the back streets and urban squares where citizens can go for a respite from the wall of noise? How has the soundscape in London changed and what sounds are in danger of being lost in the future?
