Where can I find the music used in BBC programmes?

Looking for information about... 

  • A song used in a TV programme?
    You could try using a music identification app or an internet search engine to discover what music was played during a programme. Information about the music used in a TV programme might also be made available on the programme's website or on individual episode pages. Use the BBC Programmes website to find the programme website you're looking for.
  • A song played in a radio programme?
    Follow the advice on the BBC Sounds help site: How can I find out what music was played during a programme?
  • The background or atmospheric music used in a programme?
    Sometimes music is taken from our internal production library which means it's not available commercially in the same way other music might be. It also means we may not have information such as track names or artists.
