Sound editing with Audacity

As promised, here is the link to where you can download Audacity (the sound editor that we will be using to edit our news reports tomorrow):

You might find it useful to have a look at the following site for sound effects:

You will need to create a login of your own in order to download any sound effects. Also, search carefully for what you need, as there is an enormous number of sound samples on this site (some of which are not *that* useful!)

If you want to find some TV news samples, try a google search for 'bbc news .mp3' or 'itn news at 10 .mp3'.
Remember to bring in any examples of your creative genius at work!
