UNESCO World Day for Audiovisual Heritage 27th October with The National Library of Scotland

A message from The National  Library of Scotland and Amy McDonald re their project ‘Sounds Like Scotland’!

Celebrate UNESCO World Day for Audiovisual Heritage with us! You can touch and see Scotland’s past… now’s your chance to listen to it. The Scotland’s Sounds network proudly presents Sounds like Scotland, a short animated soundtrack featuring clips from 12 audio collections held across the country from Lewis to Aberdeen and from Inverness to the Borders. The archive recordings span from 1909 to 2017 and were made on a host of weird and wonderful formats – wax cylinders, wire, shellac discs, open reel tape, cassettes and digital media. Have a listen in to Scotland’s past through birdsong, music, spoken memories and more…
