Download Over 16,000 Free Sound Effects From This BBC Archive :)

I'm sure this will be of use to some here.

Here’s the bad news: If you’re an aspiring sound designer or you’re looking for some random noise to insert into a big project you’re working on, the BBC’s new archive of more than 16,000 free sound effects won’t help you much. They’re all bound by a RemArc licence that prohibits using these files in commercial work.

That said, if you’re working on any personal or educational projects—or just need to know what “Pystyll Rhadn” falls in North Wales sounds like—you’re in luck. The BBC’s collection now gives you access to a huge collection of sounds for different objects, locations, and actions. Heck, the BBC’s listing for sounds of “1 woman approaches and stops” eats up more than a page worth of files.

Reading the licencing terms, it would seem that you can use them, but forget using them for anything worthwhile (E.G. Monetised youtube videos)...
