Thousands of HQ samples available for free!

The BBC have made a gigantic archive of sound effects available to download in WAV format. So if you've ever had the burning need to listen to a "'Snow' surface grinder operating at steel works 1969" or "'Cock-a-doodle-doo' ships' sirens" or a ÄSuzy Sing-a-Song' Singing Doll Record, spoken phrases" (imagine the creepy potential!) then now's your chance! You can explore the huge archive here and find out what you can and can't do with the sounds here.
