A Radiophonic Workshop doc

I spent yesterday afternoon watching The Alchemists of Sound, a 2003 BBC documentary on its Radiophonic Workshop department. My fellow Americans probably know of the Workshop mostly through the Doctor Who theme and the parody/pastiche of its output that forms the soundtrack to Look Around You. Highly recommended, despite the creepy man in blue in the background of every interview shot.

Here's part 1 of 6.

People keep asking what End Times and I will do when Lyndsy leaves for France in August. Well... I wouldn't be surprised if synths and musique concrète played a role in at least what I turn to next.
