The BBC pips at An Evening of Unnecessary Detail

Last year I went along to Backyard Comedy club for a short talk about the BBC pips. Anyone who’s ever listened to BBC Radio 4 will be familiar with these six little bursts of noise, but where did they come from, and what do they mean?

With thanks to the Boring Conference for commissioning this talk in the first place, and to An Evening of Unnecessary Detail for inviting me to their night to recreate it, and for their work producing the video.

  1. Very good, very funny and very informative about a topic that worries more of us than you might think. And no verbal ticks either!
