Hello to everybody,
I recently heard the beginning of this remix of BBC New but the title is cut and I cannot listen to it up to the end.
Somebody would know the name of this remix and the theme of used David Lowe ?

It's '2LO' and was used in a Behind the Scenes mini-documentary in 2000 with Huw Edwards

There are a number of similar remixes done by Mr Lowe himself and BBC staff members, as well as musicians with a penchant for the pips!

But I have a last question, at the bigining of this song, we can hear sentence by a male voice, which does she say?

'' It's Joe ... A londond state british broadcasting compagnie ... "

And who is this person ? ( A manager or a founder of the BBC ? )

Thank you for having taken time to read my question Smile

"This is 2-LO, the London station of the British Broadcasting Company calling"

Basically one of the very first messages broadcast by the BBC: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2LO https://blog.sciencemuseum.org.uk/this-is-2lo-london-broadcasting-station-calling/ https://audioboom.com/posts/1053248-90-years-of-the-bbc
