Free Sound Effect Archive From The BBC
« on: September 21, 2020, 0255 UTC »
Not sure if there's anyone here who does production for their stations, but good old Aunty Beeb just released a huge archive of 16,000 sound effects for download. They are free for personal, educational or research purposes, and can be licensed for commercial use.

Great find!

I did some searching, and Archive.org has all 60 discs available to download as RAR files: https://archive.org/details/bbcsoundeffects
