LONG-FORM INVESTIGATIVE FILM FOR BBC FUTURE

"It's 11 o'clock in the morning and I'm suddenly aware of this buzzing, pulsating noise..."

That's how our investigation begins into a curious noise that has been reported by thousands across the world.  Following science reporter Linda Geddes in her journey to trace the source of the mystery noise, we explore the possible origins of a sound that has been reported from Bristol to New Mexico.  A trick of the ear, the hum of a city or sub-sonic secret military communications?  Listen... there... barely perceptible.  Do you hear it?
