Delia Derbyshire – Sculptress of Sound

I stumbled upon this interesting documentary while researching my women-in-electronica feature. Delia Derbyshire was a pioneer of electronic music, and this fascinating BBC radio programme (accompanied by photographs in the Youtube clip) describes her extraordinary musical life.

The broadcaster and Doctor Who fan Matthew Sweet travels to The University of Manchester – home of Delia Derbyshire’s private collection of audio recordings – to learn more about the wider career and working methods of the woman who realised Ron Grainer’s original theme to Doctor Who.
