Delia Derbyshire - the Myths and the Legendary Tapes

A portrait of the character and legacy of electronic sound pioneer Delia Derbyshire , who realised the Dr Who Theme tune in 1963 and explores the idea that this extraordinary composer lived outside of time and space as other people experience it.
Its playful, psychedelic mix utilises archival materials, interviews with her collaborators and dramatisations whilst honouring the BBC Radiophonic Workshops
arranger-composer's own questing spirit.This is a life story told through sound using both Delia’s own pieces of music alongside a soundtrack constructed from samples chosen by musician and Performance artist Cosey Fanni Tutti - a phantom collaboration across time
