Quiz: Hey you, what's that sound?

What's the story?

Did you know that BBC Archive has made more than 33,000 of its sound effects available to download? They're BBC copyright but free for personal, educational or research use.

Recorded across many decades, there are sounds of everything from abbeys, acetylene torches and acid blobs to whooshes, wrestling and yachts.

There's plenty to explore in the library, but before you dive into this exciting world of sound, turn up your speakers or headphones and try this quiz for a very brief introduction.

All the answer options are the names of genuine BBC sound effects, but can you identify which ones are correct?
