A History of the World in 100 MP3 files

The BBC’s series a history of the world in 100 objects which I mentioned previously has finished.

You still can’t easily download all the MP3 files from the website in a useful way, eg. as a ZIP or tarball, but I processed their RSS feed to get the raw URLs and with a simple shell loop and wget you can grab them easily.







































































































(Yes, that list has 101 URLs …)

  1. With wget, you can save all those urls to a file, say “wget.txt” and then:

    $ wget -ci wget.txt

    Sounds like an interesting show!
