What's all that that Noise? Tom investigates - when is noise just noise, and when is it music? is it just sound in the wrong place? Tom finds that, though we resent noises in the concert hall, music needs some noise in it to give it character. He also investigates the contemporary genre of Noise Music at an avant garde club. He considers noise in our daily lives, and talks to Emily Cockayne, author of Hubbub: Filth, Noise & Stench in England 1600-1770; and to David Hendy, author of Noise: a Human History. We can't avoid noise, so can we learn to love it?
