Their license says these may be used for "eersonal, educational, or
research purposes." I guess that doesn't include songs or podcasts you
might release through some streaming service like YouTube where you have
the prospect of earning money, i.e. commercial use. As I understand it,
it also excludes using these sounds in your club gig.

Good morning friends on the list.
I write it to you, but really I don't know if it interests you. I am
fascinated by the sound effects.
If this is too off topic, I.m sorry!!!
The BBC has made available more than 16 thousand sound-effects freely
downloadable in wav format at this address:
There is of course everything, animals, sirens, machines, natural noises, of
people ... and also of different quality: anyway it is a great heritage!
Unfortunately, it's not a great file.zip to download in one shot, but one
sound at a time!
Fortunately, there is a search field, to look for what you need.
Under the search field, you can find a table with name, category, duration,
play and download.
Maybe someone can think a good trick to download everything together!
Good Friday and good sound effects!
