Summary

British singer and song-collector Sam Lee explores how archives around the world are looking to repatriate sound recordings and asks in what sense a sound can be `taken back'. He begins his quest in the archives of the British Library, amidst wax cylinders and tales of the turn-of-the-century recordists who strode out into the `field' to document the world's oral cultures.
