And the rest of this post is a copy of the front page of the Sound Archive section of the BL. It gives info about getting copies which includes a cost (that will also cover the copyright payment):-
The catalogue includes entries for almost two-and-a-half million recordings held in the Sound Archive and is updated daily. It is one of the largest catalogues of its kind anywhere in the world, covering both published and unpublished recordings in all genres from pop, jazz, classical and world music, to oral history, drama and literature, dialect, language and wildlife sounds.
You can confirm the existence of recordings and compile lists and discographies. At present there are only a few sounds available for you to listen to online. You will need to search the catalogue using the term virtual nsa in order to find these. There is a larger selection of sounds on the Sound Archive web pages.
You will find all the information you require to make a listening appointment. Make a note of the call (reference) number which appears at the foot of the entry. Then contact our Listening & Viewing Service or Recorded Sound Information Service by phone or in person to arrange an appointment.
You will also be able to place orders for copies of recordings - please be aware of the charges and the copyright restrictions that apply to this service.
The catalogue does not contain data about every single recording in the collection and some subject areas are better represented than others. If you are unable to find a particular recording or there is something you don't understand, please contact us either by email or by telephone/letter .
On-screen HELP is available at every stage of your search. Tips on searching have been prepared by each subject curator. You can also contact them directly via their web pages.
A selection of BBC Sound Archive material is held in the Sound Archive and included in the catalogue but there is no general access to data on BBC radio collections. You will need to contact us directly by email, phone or letter if your enquiry concerns a BBC radio programme that does not appear in the catalogue.
Please note that this catalogue is based on available information and the British Library accepts no responsibility for the accuracy of the data displayed. you will find there are some inconsistencies in the data. These have arisen because catalogue records were compiled from a wide range of earlier and external sources. That being so, the British Library gratefully acknowledges the co-operation of the National Discography Ltd and the BBC Gramophone Library in helping to expand the coverage of its catalogue
