I was digging around through the files of BD2K3, I noticed 4 audio files with names starting with BD2K3_J and ending with letters A-D plus the extension which are played in a secret area in the final level, where did these come from? I'm particularly interested in BD2K3_JC.wav because when reversed and slowed down you can hear:
Crisis, lesbian forces today attacked Israel
I was able to find plenty of direct quotes of this (it's a radio broadcast apparently) dating all the way back to 1982, but no source.
Does anyone have any info about where these audio clips came from?

Never noticed this!! :shock: :D :mrgreen:

But that really sounds like one of Alan Bond's hilarious, crazy insider jokes, often related to British radio/TV trivia, that he liked to hide in his creations! :D

And no, I have no freakin' idea where this clip came from! But please let me know if you can find it out! (Also noticed your thread related to the same topic on Reddit... hope you're successful!)

Quite a lot of of the stuff I found did come from Great Britain so I'll definitely keep it in mind while searching. I also tried contacting the BBC about it (it was featured in one of their programs), unfortunately they couldn't help because of COVID staff shortages.
