New sounds for national archives
Stuart Bocking discusses the 2012 additions to the National Film and Sound Archives' national register of recorded sounds, which span almost a century of Australian sounds, including iconic rockers AC/DC.
Stay up to date on breaking news with 2UE on Twitter
This year's new sounds include AC/DC's It's A Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock `n' Roll), Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' 1988 album Tender Prey, and Jimmy Little's 1963 classic Royal Telephone.
Less well-known to the public are a collection of recordings of more than 40 endangered or extinct indigenous languages, made by linguist Luise Hercus during 35 years of research.
The 2012 additions span almost a century of Australian sounds.
The oldest is one of Australia's first known commercially released recordings, The Black Watch (c1903-1910) by Percy Herford, and the newest is a 2001 album by improvisational music trio The Necks.
A radio documentary made by ABC journalist Tim Bowden in Da Nang during the Vietnam War is also among the new sounds registered.
The registry of recorded sound was established in 2007.
New additions are chosen each year from recordings nominated by the public.
They include music, spoken words and any other kinds of sound recorded more than 10 years previously. (AAP)
