Composing for Dr Who and The Radiophonic Workshop

Composer Mark Ayres of the Radiophonic Workshop presents an illustrated history of the pioneering BBC department from its founding in 1958 to its more recent independent reincarnation.

He also deconstructs their most famous creation: the original Doctor Who theme as realised in 1963 by Delia Derbyshire.
