* Air raid sirens, particularly the "attack tone", are nigh-invariably "nuke goes here" or ''SilentHill''. The latter's seems to be sampled from a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zGwwWyg2ko Castle Castings]] siren.

* The Creator/{{BBC}} had to seriously up its game on agricultural soap opera ''Radio/TheArchers'', as it was aimed at a ''very'' knowledgeable audience. Who tended to write or phone in if the sounds were wrong. An early goof was playing the wrong sort of sheep noises while dramatic scenes played out among the human cast in the lambing sheds. Unfortunately for the BBC, sheep farmers complained that those were ''not'' the sounds of ewes giving birth nor were they of new-born lambs, and it had ruined their enjoyment. It was patently obvious those were much older lambs of about four months or so, and the bleating was just generic sheep-in-a-field, you know, sheep grazing in a field on a normal day, as opposed to being driven or rounded up or sheared, all of which are completely distinctive sounds, and not characteristic of birthing ewes ''at all''. Couldn't the BBC get a simple thing right? The producer who'd naively thought any old baa-ing would do in the background got the point, and despatched researchers with tape recorders to get ''precisely'' the correct background sounds for any given scene. Some farmers still rang in to complain that the Aldridge family are stated to farm Romney Marsh sheep, yet the ones you hear in the show are quite clearly Bluefaced Leicesters, as anyone should know... The Archers has always striven to be absolutely correct since, and the BBC now boasts one of the best gricultural sounds collections in the world.

* Many brand-new sound effects orginated by Milligan and Adams for their respective shows were in fact added to the BBC stock library as useful concepts to guide producers who followed them.

* Creator/DouglasAdams was meticuluous in his desired sound-effects for ''Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy''. He wanted the soundscape, in then-new stereo radio, to be as carefully constructed as the music on any concept album. His notes in the scripts as to the exact sounds he wanted to hear tend to be longer than the actual dialogue. The BBC Radiophonic workshop relished the challenge after years of work on ''Series/DoctorWho''. [[note]]A show Adams had extensively written for and given affectionate ''homage'' in ''H2G2''[[/note]]
