Researchers from the University of Canterbury in Christchurch restored the recording created in 1951 using a BBC outside-broadcasting unit and a portable acetate disk. The recording, which begins with the United Kingdom's "God Save the Queen," also includes the nursery rhyme "Baa Baa Black Sheep" and the Glenn Miller hit "In The Mood."
The recording captured on the acetate disk was originally played on a massive computer, which occupied most of the ground floor of Turing's Computing Machine Laboratory.
