This CD features sound effects from four classic SF programmes: Hitchhiker's guide, 1980 vintage Doctor Who, Blake's Seven and the radio series Earthsearch. Although I never listened to the latter, it wasn't difficult to have a little nostalgia trip over the other three sets of effects, especially remembering 'Orac off' from Blake's Seven, (it was always a blessing when they turned that bloomin' machine off!). It is a shame that the Doctor Who effects are only from series 18, which apart from another encounter with the Master, only had the Marshmen to cope with monster-wise, else we could have had more monster noises. But you never know when an alarm klaxon, laser blaster, alien landscape, or indeed Orac off might come in useful.

A classic album of 1970s and 1980s BBC sci-fi sound effects, remastered for CD with original sleeve notes and artwork. No sci-fi film, TV or radio series is complete without its own unique and ample assemblage of way-out intergalactic sound effects. In the 1970s and 1980s these were made on synthesisers, harmonisers and other electronic sound benders, and constructed with the aid of multiple multi-track tape decks. Each sound was made for a specific event in a specific programme. Yet each one stands on its own, whether it be a straightforward laser or plasma blaster, or a spacecraft crashing into the sea of a hitherto unknown planet. Reproduced here are classic sounds used by the immortal Doctor Who, the intrepid Blake's 7, the zany intergalactic Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and the fantastical Earthsearch. Landing the TARDIS or blasting away with a laser cannon is now within the reach of us all.

Having owned the original vinyl of this many, many moons ago, this was just the right exercise in nostalgia especially the clips from Hitchhikers which just go to demonstrate how determined the creators were to make their audio play sound like a prog rock record.

This CD of classic BBC sound effects consists of...
1-15 from The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy
16-30 from Doctor Who 1980s
31-61 from Blake's Seven
62-81 from EarthSearch.
Except for a vague memory of that era of Doctor Who I can't claim to know the other series well at all. When ordering this I knew the Beeb's sound department's reputation for great effects so happily ordered this hoping for some of the more obvious effects that you hear reused still today and maybe (in Doctor Who's case) some of the super obvious ones like the Tardis disappearing, etc... Alas, I am left a bit disappointed as these effects all seem pretty general background stuff to me and hard to place unless of course you are a super fan of any of those series. I would approach this with a little caution if I was you. Fans of those series can probably add a star. Might be pretty useful if you are in any way involved in a drama group or course though. Hope that helps a little.
