** There is an urban legend that farmers have been known to write in and complain if they used the wrong [[StockSoundEffect animal sound effect...effect]]... although the BBC did realise quite early on that they were dealing with a listenership that had expert knowledge, and took pains to ensure the animal sounds were appropriate to the scene. The BBC's library of animal sound effects is now unparelleled, and a large proportion of this is down to the longevitry of this show.
