The Archers (Radio 4)

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

 

Does the entire show take part in a studio, or are some parts of it recorded outside?

 

Listening to it at the moment, and it sounds as if they're actually out in the countryside somewhere.

 

Or is it all pretty good sound effects?

 

Thanks.

It is all recorded at the BBC Studios in Birmingham. 

 

Outdoors scenes are recorded in ‘soundproof’ rooms to deaden the echoes and birds, trees and tractor sounds are dubbed on afterwards in post production.

Thanks TCH. Certainly didn't know that. Much appreciated 😊

Sadly, the skill of the foley artist banging coconuts together to make horses hoofs, treading in a box of gravel to simulate walking down a gravel drive or using their vast collection of assorted pieces of wood joined together by unoiled hinges to make squeaky door sounds is gradually being replaced by digital sound effects files.

Me neither, always thought it was about Robin Hood and his very merry men.
