The songs and calls of 194 species of British birds are represented and when it first appeared in 1958 it was easily the largest collection ever provided for study and enjoyment. To include so many species on two long-play records, or, for that matter, on the thirteen original 78 r.p.m. discs, it was necessary to average just under thirty seconds per species, so within these various recordings available at the time a selection was made to illustrate the songs and calls of as characteristic a range of individual performers as possible. Nevertheless differences may exist and the reader may find that his local performer may vary from the individual selected for this Sound-Guide. The present re-issue in long-play format, with its records playing at 33 1/3 r.p.m., is easier to handle than the first edition but at the time of the original issue there were several compelling reasons for the speed of the records being at 78 r.p.m." The recordings were made at various times during the 1940s and '50s, by the authors, the BBC and the Swedish broadcaster Radiotjanst. Ludwig Koch was resident naturalist and director of wildlife sound-recording projects. Eric Simms "was appointed in 1950 to succeed Dr Ludwig Koch as the BBC's resident naturalist and director of its wildlife sound recording projects. With the introduction of tape-recording, parabolic deflectors, radio links and hydrophones he pioneered techniques which are now commonplace. .Eric Simms now has more than 3500 radio broadcasts and 500 television appearances to his credit." From the publisher's blurb to Simm's autobiography. Nº de ref. del artículo: 42961
