    A festival for experimental music in Bergen, Norway. The festival organisers select work for broadcast by international sound artists, radio artists and composers who are pushing at the boundaries of their genre. Each year during the festival a radio art platform, Radio Space, streams online 24 hours a day so the public can tune in and become part of the festival’s home listening experiment. The festival’s website has a well organised archive which offers access to the websites of past festivals from 2006 until the present, all the Programme books from 2004 onwards, and the section Borealis in Videos and Sound which holds a selection of performances from each festival; there is also a Borealis Vimeo channel with over 75 videos and clips showing some of the experimental music and sound art performances.

    This is the catalogue for the Essex Record Office, which holds not only documents, maps and photographs but also sound recordings and videos. The collections cover oral history; selected items from BBC Essex radio; selections from local hospital TV and talking newspapers; videos of local interest, including many from the East Anglian Film Archive; dialect recordings; and recordings of music performed by local musicians, including a major collection of folk music and folk dance drawn from Essex sources. The site also offers well-produced user guidelines to four registers: family, house, vehicles and electoral rolls. Official registers are excellent avenues into researching many aspects of local history and culture but their records can sometimes be difficult to understand, so the tips on how to search and how to make sense of the results are very useful. The advanced search tool can be used to narrow results to one type of material only (e.g. audiovisual). To watch the moving image and sound holdings an account needs to be created, and registration is free.

    Presented by economist and journalist Tim Harford, this is a BBC radio series exploring the way new ideas and inventions have woven, tangled or sliced right through the invisible economic web that surrounds us every day. The short programmes show not only how new ideas come about, but also their unintended consequences: for example, how the gramophone introduced unequal pay in the music industry, or how the fridge shaped the politics of developing countries across the globe. The episodes are available indefinitely.
