This programme aims to loosen up the students and get them discussing the subject, as well as introducing them to some basic terms and definitions, and some general principles. Humour and music are used to create a context in which the students can feel at ease with producing new sounds. The programme uses metaphor and analogy as well as graphics to explain the workings of the various parts.

This film is of historical interest but the issues raised are still current.
